ABOUT SUFFOLK ASSOCIATION FOR COUNSELLING

Introduction

Welcome to the Directory for the Suffolk Association for Counselling (SAC). Our Directory is the most comprehensive available for anyone seeking a Counsellor or Counselling Supervisor in Suffolk. The information is updated annually and is presented in a format that provides an informative snapshot of all services offered.  

Only Counsellors who belong to a professional organisation and who hold public liability insurance are listed in the SAC Directory. This means you can be assured that all Counsellors listed adhere to a professional code of ethics and are committed to providing good practice. Please note that changes to directory entries may occur during the year. 
 
We hope that this Directory will enable you to make an informed choice about the Counsellors, Counselling Supervisors or Agencies you approach. To this end, hints about finding a counsellor are included under FAQ.A description of different counselling approaches, a glossary of counselling terms and phrases and the meaning of abbreviations used can be found under the FAQ tab. There is a section on Counselling Training Providers and you will also find a list of contact numbers for most core counselling courses in and around Suffolk.

The Suffolk Association for Counselling was founded in 1990.  It has a management committee and it also produces a twice yearly newsletter.  The aims of the Association are to -
  • facilitate the exchange of information and ideas about counselling;
  • facilitate mutual support for members;
  • provide a network of contacts in the counselling movement;
  • organise events, conferences, meetings and training;
  • promote good professional practice;
  • raise public awareness of counselling.
Membership is open to individuals with an interest in counselling and the aims of the Association. 
 
SAC itself is not a professional association with a code of ethics. However, it is the responsibility of all who advertise in the Directory to ensure that they have full (not student or trainee) current membership of a recognised professional organisation with a Code of Ethics and complaints procedure, and that they have current public liability insurance.  Members must not use membership of SAC in advertising or directories to enhance their professional status.
