In seeking a therapist the public are advised to read the notes given below and the profiles of individual members carefully. Members’ qualifications, experience and areas of specialisation vary greatly and it is important to clarify that these are appropriate for your individual need before entering into a therapeutic contract. We recommend that where possible you consult an accredited member. If this is not possible in your area, we suggest that you ensure that the therapist you see is properly qualified to help you.
COSRT accreditation is awarded to psychosexual therapists who have met strict criteria in respect of training, experience, knowledge, ethical standards, clinical skills and commitment to continuous professional development; this is audited annually. They are bound by and work to the Codes of Ethics and Practice for General and Accredited Members.
General Membership of COSRT is a very broad category of membership. Some members may practice in the field of psychosexual therapy but do not currently meet the criteria for, or do not seek, accredited membership. Students undergoing training are included in this category and they are required to clearly state this in their profile. General Members are bound by, and work to, the Codes of Ethics and Practice for General and Accredited Members.
