PUBLIC BRIEFING PAPER: Concerns about proposed regulatory changes to the ethos of the voluntary Accredited Registers Programme and impact on the accessibility of psychotherapy and counselling and service user choice in the UK
The purpose of this paper is to highlight how proposed regulatory changes to the Accredited Registers (AR) Programme under the Professional Standards Authority (PSA) will potentially impact on the accessibility of psychotherapy and counselling in the UK.
The PSA which is accountable to the government via the Privy Council is responsible for overseeing ten statutory bodies regulating health and social care in the UK. The Accredited Register Programme was launched in 2012 to promote best practice and good governance for voluntary professional registers and over two million unregulated health and social care providers.

The Person-Centred Approach Network (PCAN) exists to provide opportunities for people to experience temporary Person-Centred Communities. The gatherings are not led or facilitated and have no formal structure except for conditions required by the venue e.g. meals. There is a commitment to creating an environment of the Core Conditions: where individuals are accepted and valued, where we each strive for empathy and authenticity. Since there is no-one 'in charge', each member of the group is able to take personal responsibility. It is an opportunity for self-exploration of, for example, your relationship with personal power. The gatherings can be challenging, exciting and deeply moving.
