I noticed, belatedly, that a topic I posted in the Counselling section http://www.healthypages.co.uk/forum/psychotherapy/64748-regulation-counselling-psychotherapy.html had been moved here. I should point out that the BACP can't distinguish between counselling and psychotherapy, and the hPC got into all kinds of trouble trying to invent some differences, notably to do with length of training, There seems to e no difference in the measurable outcomes between courses of counselling and psychotherapy - although what that means in practice could be up for debate. Perhaps they should give the job of differentiating to the longsuffering HP mods? Seriously, does anyone here have any ideas? I am a BACP accredited counsellor and psychotherapist, and I don't.
