TESTIMONIALS ARE CONSIDERED BY ME AND BY MANY PROFESSIONAL THERAPY BODIES AS BEING UNPROFESSIONAL AND UNETHICAL.
You may be wondering why I do not publish testimonials. This is because:
1. They are considered unethical by many therapy related bodies (particularly the UKCP of which I am a trainee member)
2. They can be fabricated
3. The Advertising Standards Authority require any testimonial to be verifiable and that would conflict with the confidentiality I offer my clients.
4. As a society we are getting used to sites such as Tripadvisor, but the difference is that those reviews are independent. On a practitioner’s site, they are responsible for the content and would naturally only put up good reviews.
5. A good, well trained therapist will have a wide range of approaches that they use to match to each particular client’s needs. Therapy is not like buying a kettle, and one person’s experience is unlikely to match your own so reading other peoples’ experiences may be misleading rather than helpful.
