BACP, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy is a professional association for members of the counselling profession in the UK. They aim to uphold the highest standards in the industry. You can find a list of BACP local therapists by visiting their Find a Therapist page.

There are over 50 independent counsellors working in and around Gravesham who work with Young People. If you can afford to pay for their services, then we strongly recommend contacting a therapist directly and as early as possible – remember, EARLY INTERVENTION is key.

Below are a list of independent BACP Counsellors, who are accepting the EHMF funding scheme, when referred, using the EHMF self-referral form. This is to fund therapy for young people, aged 13-18 living in Gravesham.
