Work is progressing successfully on the ground-breaking project to map professional competencies for the counselling and psychotherapy professions.

The Scope of Practice and Education project (SCoPEd) is being undertaken in collaboration with the British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

We're nearing completion of the initial evidence-based framework and you'll be hearing from us soon as we look to establish what your thoughts may be about the impact of the work.

The project will systematically map existing competences, standards, training and practice requirements within counselling and psychotherapy. We are using an evidence-based approach to identify the different and overlapping competences between them.

If you've been to one of our Making Connections events recently you’ll have heard further detail from Nicola Forshaw, our professional standards development facilitator. To find out more watch the clip below.
