"I am delighted to announce and welcome David Weaver as our new President, from this AGM. David is stepping away from the Board following a three-year term, but will be bringing his commitment to social justice to the President role, working closely with our Vice Presidents.
I would like to thank Dr Mike Shooter, who is stepping down as President from BACP. Mike has supported us in our work in promoting the value of counselling and psychotherapy for some considerable time. Mike's warmth, intelligence, insight and absolute belief in the value of the counselling professions have been critically important to our work over the years. We will miss him greatly but thank him for his enormous contribution."

Therapy Today is the flagship professional journal of BACP. The journal contains informative, authoritative articles on all aspects of counselling and psychotherapy, along with regular features such as columns, news, questionnaires, dilemmas, the latest research studies, reviews and readers' letters.
Published ten times a year, Therapy Today is mailed out free of charge to every member of BACP. You can also subscribe to the journal.
Our online Counselling and Psychotherapy Research (CPR) journal is an innovative, international, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to linking research with practice. Pluralist in orientation, the journal recognises the value of qualitative, quantitative and mixed method strategies of inquiry and aims to promote high-quality, ethical research that informs and develops counselling and psychotherapy practice.
CPR is of value to researchers, practitioners, policy makers and those whose professions may use counselling skills in their work. A full archive of articles back to Volume 1 is available on the CPR website.
