All therapists within our network are trained in their relevant fields and registered with their respective bodies, such as the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC), British Association of Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP), British Psychological Society (BPS) or United Kingdom Psychotherapy Council (UKCP). Furthermore, they are overseen by a recognised and qualified person.

The needs of our clients come first, therefore all clients are encouraged to feedback their experience of therapeutic treatment, positive or negative, as we constantly strive to improve our service. Every client receives a Satisfaction survey at the beginning of their treatment and are asked to complete, with any recommendations on how we can improve our service. In addition, our service is discreet and confidential. We comply fully with Data Protection Laws.

Clinical outcomes should be measurable and as a result we continually measure the effectiveness of all treatment delivered by our therapists using validated methods, such as psychometric testing, and regularly perform peer to peer audits of treatment and reports. Curian Minds also provide support and coaching to our network of therapists, as well as encouraging career progression and further learning.
