I have thought pretty long and hard about writing a review on therapy/counselling/psychotherapy, not least because I recognise that if I do write a review and let members here know what I do for a living I might get a lot of people contacting me via the guestbook, with questions that I can't or would not be prepared to answer. Also, I can only 'touch' on the subject here.
At the moment, pretty much anyone in the UK can call themselves a therapist, or counsellor, or psychotherapist, however, thankfully that is very soon going to change.
