Client Testimonials

According to strict ethical guidelines set by the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP), I am not allowed to include client testimonials in any of my advertising, including my websites.

Why I don’t have client testimonials

A few of the many reasons why testimonials are considered unethical, misleading and unhelpful:

  • Testimonials are very difficult to verify, and can easily be altered or faked.
  • Testimonials can give an unrealistic view of a therapists abilities as they are not necessarily randomly selected. Those testimonials that give a glowing report may be selected for display whilst negative ones are quietly discarded.
  • Testimonials may not be requested from every client, but only from those who will give a positive report.
  • The clients best interests should always be the therapists focus. The client is not there to enhance the therapists credibility or ego.
  • Asking clients to write testimonials to enhance a therapists credibility could put them in an awkward position. The client may feel pressured to write something positive.
  • Confidentiality is crucial for psychotherapy and counselling to be effective. Testimonials may potentially jeopardise that.
