Collaborative Practice

The Counsellor recognises there are times when collaborative practice with other professionals from different disciplines would be in the best interest of her client and may recommend either bringing in our own specialist colleagues or suggest including a client’s own advisers or consultants who are already working with her client. These may include legal, financial or medical practitioners or specialist business mentors or sports’ trainer/coaches.

With the mutual agreement and involvement of her client and other such professionals a collaborative ‘plan of action’ can be devised, with clear roles and responsibilities, focused solely on serving her client’s needs and previously agreed goals. Such a plan would involve regular collaborative review of progress. In all circumstances The Counsellor@ The Challenge of Excellence operates within BACP’s Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling/Psychotherapy.
