The National Council of Psychotherapists is well positioned to enable and support practitioners in this developing and ever increasingly well evidenced field, in a manner underpinned with an ethos of robust public protection and self-reflection at all levels.
We were formed in 1971, which makes it one of the longest established societies of its type in the UK. We are a register of and national association of therapists, to whom individuals looking for Psychotherapists, Counsellors, Coaches and Hypnotherapists may confidently refer.
The NCP is dedicated to advancing the development of quality, service driven integrative and Multimodal Psychotherapy provision. This is illustrated by working models at solution focused, holistic and specialist levels of professional therapy service and is characterised by evidence based yet holistic working practices.
Most schools of psychological thought are represented within our current membership and a wide variety of therapeutic approaches are offered. We do not legislate against any model of therapy, providing the practitioner comes under the classification of psychotherapist and is suitably qualified to our standards.
We welcome professional therapists, counsellors and coaches from all over the UK. If you are based outside the UK then you can become a member of our International Council.
Wherever in the world you practice, becoming a member of the NCP or INCP offers you integrated support and advice.
