Counsellors Together UK, alongside 6 other counselling and psychotherapy organisations have launched a new collaboration – Partners for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
We will be working alongside;
* Psychotherapy and Counselling Union (PCU)
* Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility (PCSR)
* The Alliance for Counselling and Psychotherapy
* The Person-Centred Association (TPCA)
* The College of Psychoanalysts (CP-UK)
* UK Person-Centred Experiential
The PCP aims to work together to ‘challenge the dominant discourse from our professional bodies’ (BACP, UKCP and BPC), especially in relation to the proposed APPG and SCoPEd project. You can read more about this on the Home page of the PCP website here.
All of our organisations have been asking BACP, UKCP and BPC to work with us for some time now regarding the APPG and SCoPEd project, and have been met with refusal. We feel this new partnership is the way forward, and we hope to open up the discussions around the proposed APPG and the SCoPEd project to the wider profession.
You can keep up to date with the PCP by checking the ‘News’ section on the website here. An interesting piece by representatives of PCSR has recently been published entitled, ‘Turning the Tide – How can therapists become more engaged with the future of the profession?’ – Excerpt – “The “Scrap SCoPEd” Resolution gave rise to unprecedented levels of engagement from counsellors and psychotherapists, but only 5.1% of BACP members actually voted, either for or against it. PCSR representatives of PCP examine the role of alienation, and ask how therapists can play a central role in shaping the future of counselling and psychotherapy.” Read more here.
