Therapist Application Form

Simply click the link below and make your payment of £25. We will then request your references. Once both have been received we will invite you for a telephone interview.

In order to process your application we require therapists to pay a £25 registration fee which will cover the significant admin and staff costs involved in its processing, and also to allow us to continue our work with anxiety sufferers. Unfortunately, we will not be able to process your application unless we receive this. This fee applies to all therapists, including individuals looking to access a placement with Anxiety UK and is non-refundable. We will also require you to complete a DBS check if you do not have a current valid one.

We expect that the application process should take no more than four to six weeks. The delays are usually at the beginning and end of the process whilst waiting for references and for DBS checks to come back. Please contact references in advance of your application to encourage them to feedback ASAP. We will aim to contact you regulalrly to advise of progress or any delays to the status of your application. Any applicants that have not contacted Anxiety UK within six months to inform us of the reason for any delay will have their application removed.

Cookie Law

A new law on cookies demands that you, as a website user, are given the opportunity to understand how cookies are used on our websites and consent to cookies being stored on your computer (laptop/mobile/tablet).

What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file, typically of letters and numbers, downloaded to your computer when you access websites. Typically, they contain the following information: a site name and unique user ID, the duration of the cookie's abilities and effects, and a random number. As a rule, cookies cannot be used to reveal your identity or personally identifying information.

When you visit a website that uses cookies for the first time, a cookie is downloaded onto your computer. The next time you visit that website, your computer checks to see if it has a cookie that is relevant and sends the information contained in that cookie back to the website. The website then notes that you have been there before, and in some cases, tailors what pops up on screen to take account of that fact. They also might record how long you spend on each page on a site, what links you click, even your preferences for page layouts and colour schemes.

Generally, the role of cookies is beneficial, making your interaction with frequently-visited sites smoother with no extra effort on your part. Without cookies, online shopping would be much harder. Without cookies, some websites will become less interactive with the cookie option turned off.
