Statutory Registration of Psychotherapists

Extract

The Statutory Registration of Psychotherapists is a continuing issue which remains to be resolved. Various parties have been interested for all sorts of reasons, such as the raising of training standards, the protection of patients, the avoidance of VAT for lay psychotherapists in private practice, or the establishment of a new professional identity which would enable the employment of lay therapists within the NHS (comparable to child psychotherapists). For all these and other reasons active debate continues. The College at least needs a view. If it actively and unanimously speaks in favour of Registration, government time might be provided for a Bill. If we do nothing, or are against, other bodies will probably proceed and another Private Member's Bill may sooner or later succeed. So are we to be involved or not, and if so in what role?
