About Us

The HFP provides a counselling service to the community of Nottingham. As well as being a training centre for postgraduate psychotherapy students at The University of Nottingham, the HFP is a research environment.

The therapy service offers up to twenty sessions of person-centred experiential therapy. The therapy is conducted by qualified therapists and trainee therapists. All therapists receive supervision in accordance with BACP requirements.

Sessions are offered to individual clients; each session lasts for 50-minutes and will typically be offered one sessions per week. We provide comfortable, safe surroundings, where privacy will be assured.

Counselling Opportunities in Research

HFP as a research environment.

HFP services committed to the development of new knowledge in the field of person-centred experiential psychotherapy through research.

Participation in research generally requires clients to be involved in a range of measures, either at each counselling session, or at particular intervals during therapy and follow-up.
