What we do
We are a group of qualified, skilled counsellors, tutors and clinical supervisors who have recognised a need for providing an affordable service for therapists and trainers and based on our experience we have formed an organisation to fulfil this need.
Lindum counselling and therapy association (LCTA) is an independent educational and therapy organisation providing membership for the helping professions. Our management team are all qualified experienced counsellors, clinical supervisors and trainers
We provide a realistic code of ethics and guidelines for the helping professions
At LCTA we aware through experience that some of the ethical frameworks from large organisations are extremely complex and only relate specific helping professions. Whilst we are also aware that ethical guidelines are vital to keeping both our clients and therapists safe, we recognise the human aspect of all therapy situations and for that reason there does need to be a degree of flexibility in most areas. We acknowledge that client safety and respect is paramount, and we also recognise the therapist safety and respect is on utmost importance. Based on this view we have simplified our code of ethics to enable them to be achievable not prohibitive.
We provide an affordable membership scheme, we are very aware of the massive cost of training in the helping professions and also that this cost doesn't stop once qualified when full membership of associations is required.
We provide course and workshop accreditation at 4 levels
Based on past experience we are also aware that it can cost large sums of money to gain course and training accreditation and for the smaller training providers can be hard to attain.
Accreditation is a way of validating the course, workshop or training provider and its delivery by an independent organisation. Our accreditation panel is an experienced team of therapists and trainers who will give honest and straightforward feedback and recommendations.
