Culture of Therapy

Teamwork Trust has its own well established counselling service - a professional, confidential, safe and person centred service.

We work with and support the general public and our local communities, getting referrals from GPs and community mental health team, wellbeing teams, crisis intervention and local voluntary organisations such as Mind and Northamptonshire Carers.

We also take a large number of self referrals, who find Teamwork Trust thanks to our excellent word of mouth reputation.

Our team is made up of volunteer and employed counsellors who have a minimum of Level 3 Certificate in Counselling and are in the process of completing, or have completed, Level 4 or above. As an organisation, we are a member of the British Association of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (BACP) and adhere to their ethical framework. All our counsellors are members of a professional counselling body.


Jackie Sawford is Head of Counselling for Teamwork Trust, supported by Lead Counsellors  - Peter Arthur, Lisa Ratcliffe, Cathy Telford and Nicola Woods.

Jackie is passionate about recognising the value of her whole team, including the excellent team of volunteers.
