The project began as a collaboration between BACP, British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) and United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP).

In November 2020, the project group was expanded to include four more Professional Standards Agency (PSA) Accredited Register bodies; Association of Christian Counsellors (ACC), Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP), Human Givens Institute (HGI) and National Counselling Society (NCS).

SCoPEd is looking to systematically map existing competences, standards, training and practice requirements within counselling and psychotherapy - using an evidence-based approach to identify the different and overlapping competences between them.

We hope that this ground-breaking work will help to clarify the professions for the public, trainers, employers, clients and patients and other stakeholders in this field.
