The Psychotherapist

The Psychotherapist is UKCP’s flagship magazine that keeps members informed of developments in the psychotherapy profession.

Each edition of The Psychotherapist looks at a particular theme within psychotherapy or a topic with a psychotherapeutic angle. It offers members opportunities to share best practice, share developments likely to impact on their practice and encourage spirited debates between members or discuss views on professional practice and topical issues.

The Psychotherapist is published three times a year – spring, summer and autumn. You can download the latest issue here.
