In 2010, the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) carried out some research to find out more about people’s attitudes towards counselling and psychotherapy.
Some of the key findings included:
- 95% thought that it’s a good idea to seek counselling or psychotherapy for a problem before it gets out of hand
- 91% thought that it was more acceptable to talk about emotional problems than it was in the past
- 88% thought that people might be happier if they talked to a counsellor or psychotherapist about their problems
