Articles should be a maximum of 2,200 words, including references. Please keep the audience in mind. Thresholds’ readers include members of BACP Spirituality, subscribers, and a wide variety of organisations. Many are counsellors and psychotherapists, but not all. Many have a faith commitment, but not all. Avoid assuming readers share your assumptions or beliefs – ‘As Christians, Muslims, Pagans, we...’ – or using language specific to one spiritual or therapeutic tradition, without explaining your terms.
Please see our Author's guidelines.
Amy McCormack, Editor, Thresholds
Thresholds is read by counsellors and psychotherapists with an interest in spirituality, belief or pastoral care, within and outside the context of a faith community.
