Dr Clare Symons, Head of Research, gives four reasons to make the case why mental health research matters to BACP:

  • Campaigning - how research underpins our campaign work to make counselling more available to those who need it

  • Accessible - how research can help to improve access to and the effectiveness of therapy for marginalised groups

  • Standards - how research supports high quality standards of counselling practice and provision

  • Effectiveness - how research demonstrates the effectiveness of counselling and psychotherapy to support client choice
