Connecting You to HACP

Connecting Counsellors, Psychotherapists and Clients

The Hampshire Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (HACP) is here to connect Counsellors/Psychotherapists with each other and with clients. HACP was set up in 1990 and is a non-profit membership organisation. The organisation’s intention is to increase public awareness of counselling and psychotherapy in Hampshire. HACP promotes  diversity and easy access.
