A Professional Home for Counsellors and Psychotherapists

We recognise the experience and skills that each individual can bring to our profession, and you'll find that this is reflected in our application process.

Membership of the Society is a partnership. We're here to listen, support, and work hard on behalf of our members. Our members are our expertise, and one of the fundamental principles upon which the Society was founded, and continues to this day, is that of being member-led, which is why we consult our members and ensure they have the final say on all key decisions. Membership with the Society comes with a range of benefits and opportunities.

With fifty years of experience behind me of the different organisations related to counselling and therapy in Britain, my choice of membership of the NCPS is because I believe It recognises that counsellors and therapists should be encouraged to develop their own style and practice and to become autonomous, rather than fall in slavishly behind standardised regulations, while at the same time, of course, adhering to the sound ethical principles that the NCPS promotes.
