Have your say on national standards for counsellors and psychotherapists

Consultation is now open on the national standards for counsellors and psychotherapists.

General public

We are developing national standards for counsellors and psychotherapists. 

The standards will describe the experience, capabilities and behaviours expected of counsellors and psychotherapists, including: 

  • education
  • supervision
  • continuing professional development
  • oversight requirements.

We want to hear from you on your experience as a counsellor, psychotherapist, client or representative. We will use your feedback to develop robust national standards for the sector.

To have your say, see the Consultation Hub. The consultation will close at 5pm Friday 5 July 2024.
