It is time for a change in the binary-choice of either a culture of jam-and-Jerusalem volunteerism or medicalised box-ticking, in the future of Counselling and Psychotherapy. Current behaviours by the C&P ‘leadership’, threaten the development of a revived professionalism in the sector, and favour the relentless push to see practitioners as a ‘hobby’ and ‘free’ workforce at the bidding of their membership organisations.

CTUK offers an alternative activism – one that puts agency back into the hands of individual practitioners, rather than the self-interested few; gives ignored and sidelined voices a space to be heard, and alternative opinions a place for debate.

It is a time for affirmative action in Counselling and Psychotherapy, and CTUK leads the way.
