SCoPEd - Next Steps

Written by Marc Gibson on . Posted in Blog

Following discussions and correspondence regarding the proposed All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on counselling and psychotherapy, and the ongoing concerns about the SCoPEd project, The Person-Centred Association has affiliated with the newly formed Partners for Counselling and Psychotherapy. Further Information can be found at

The Partners for Counselling and Psychotherapy (PCP)  is a union made up of The Person-Centred Association, the Psychotherapy and Counselling Union, the National Counselling Society, Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility, the Alliance for Counselling and Psychotherapy, Counsellors Together, UK Person Centred Experiential, and the College of Psychoanalysts. We are collaborating with the aim of developing an inclusive debate about the future of counselling and psychotherapy. We are hopeful that this project will give a stronger voice to the concerns of our members about the centralising, undemocratic approach being pursued by the three largest professional bodies.

Further developments will be posted on the TPCA website and can be found on the above website
