We are delighted to announce that the National Counselling Society (NCS) have joined Partners for Counselling and Psychotherapy, working alongside our existing seven organisations to present a united voice challenging current political narratives around SCoPEd and the proposed APPG, and standing for the values of counselling and psychotherapy.

NCS’s involvement with PCP brings our combined memberships to more than 18,000 counsellors and psychotherapists, which is a remarkable achievement, and strengthens our position to work towards our aims of ensuring that both clients’ and our members’ interests are heard and honoured as we continue to debate and negotiate the direction of the profession.

The NCS have welcomed the move: “The NCS is delighted to add our voice to that of the Partnership on a wide range of issues.  We believe that the future of our profession lies in the spirit of inclusivity and mutual respect between all stakeholders, and that the Partnership and its affiliated organisations can play a vital role in safeguarding the profession for all.”

We look forward to working alongside NCS and our other like-minded organisations, as we continue to stand up for therapeutic values, and the future of counselling and psychotherapy.

      Hi, this means that members can expect NCS to continue their work supporting diverse practice, both as an individual organisation, and now through their collaboration with PCP too. According to BACP, they have recently reached 50,000 members, which includes students, individual members, and retired members (who are not on the BACP register) as well as registered and accredited members. PCP organisations have now reached a combined membership of over 19,000.
