Bee Sober Affiliated Counsellor Terms & Conditions


Bee Sober is a non-profit organisation offering support and social interaction for people who wish to live a sober lifestyle.

The Parties agree and acknowledge that the Affiliated Counsellor shall offer a counselling service, in connection with Bee Sober operating through The Bee Sober Official Website.

The Bee Sober Brand

As an affiliated Bee Sober counsellor, you are representing the Bee Sober brand and its ethos. Although we do not expect our affiliated counsellors to be sober themselves, we do ask that they do not encourage, advocate or discuss alcohol as a stress-reliever during any meetings.

Please be aware that your clients may also be taking part in our Bee Sober support services to maintain and establish sobriety, for example, Bee Sober Membership, drop-in lounges, sober support lounges, coaching services and our 30-day Sober Experiment.

Communications Agreement

We agree to post your listing on our Bee Sober website with the information you provide us.  We ask for £55 one-off fee to cover the cost of the website development for your listing.  All appointments and clients sourced via our website will be booked through us.  We therefore ask that you provide specific availability information to us so we can set up a booking form. 

When a client books and pays for their first session, we will contact you with the details, please feel free to contact the client at this point with your introduction and to arrange their care.

Each appointment made (including on-going appointments from the introduction) will be paid via our payment system and you will invoice us monthly, on the first working day of each month for your fee.  Bee Sober CIC will charge £10 or 25% (whichever is greater) per client and per appointment made so please take this into consideration when setting out your fee.  Our fee will also be for any ongoing appointments from the point of introduction and clients should not ever be taken on as a personal client for up to six weeks after their final session via Bee Sober.  If found to do so, your listing will be removed and our contract will be severed immediately.

The affiliated counsellor agrees to these terms of payment and will honour the ongoing agreement for invoicing and payment and agrees that any counsellor:client relationship established through Bee Sober will be honoured as such throughout the term of the counselling.


The Parties to this Agreement may not disclose to any third party, the use of the works engaged by the Affiliated Counsellor with the Company without the other party's written consent. Neither Party may sell, nor disclose with any third party any proprietary or confidential information acquired by them in the course of their engagement with the other, without the written consent of the other party.

The Affiliated Counsellor agrees to return to Bee Sober CIC all confidential documents, records, or any information owned by the company upon the termination of the Agreement. In case of failure to return the confidential documents, records, or information, the affiliated counsellor shall notify the Company and shall agree on how such information shall be disposed or returned to the Company.  The affiliated counsellor will not disclose any information to others upon termination of the contract.

The affiliated counsellor agrees to respect the privacy of all members, adhere to GDPR legislation and will not disclose any passwords or other sensitive information provided by Bee Sober (if applicable).


All affiliated counsellors agree to provide full disclosure of their qualifications, insurance, affiliations and DBS data.

All affiliated counsellors agree to generate a Core 10 score on session 1, 3 and 6 for each client and provide this data, without the client’s personal details, to Bee Sober for funding application purposes.
