Our Therapists

The psychotherapists and counsellors who work from The Worsley Centre are independent practitioners who share a passion for providing high quality therapeutic services. The Centre undertakes a vetting procedure with all practitioners to ensure the highest standards. However, the therapy process is highly personal and clients engage the individual practitioner rather than the Centre.
