European Journal of Psychotherapy and Counselling

EJPC is a psychotherapy and counselling research journal in Europe. As part of our exclusive affiliation with EJPC, all UKCP members can get access to previous and current issues of the journal. 

The European Journal of Psychotherapy and Counselling (EJPC) is now exclusively affiliated with UKCP. EJPC is an international, interdisciplinary journal which covers the psychological therapies with particular, but not exclusive, reference to developments in psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, counselling and counselling psychology. EJPC seeks to further psychotherapy in the European context and build knowledge in practice-based, theoretical, and empirical research. It is edited, and has been since its inception 25 years ago, by Prof Del Loewenthal. You can read Prof Del Loewenthal’s blog welcoming the affiliation here.

Get Involved

There are several ways in which we encourage UKCP members to get involved with EJPC.

  • Submit a journal article

If your research fits within the aims and scope of EJPC, you are welcome to submit an article to EJPC for consideration. Publishing an article is a great way to disseminate your research to a wider audience, further your career, and contribute to the wider psychotherapeutic profession. You can find our introductory guide to writing a publishable research article on our website. After selecting your research journal and writing your paper, it's time to submit your article. Find a guide to help you complete the submission process. EJPC is an academically independent, peer reviewed journal and therefore, while we encourage submissions, we cannot guarantee publication.

  • Book reviews

Book reviews are an important component of journal issues and are an excellent way to introduce yourself academic writing. If you’re interested in reviewing a book in your field of expertise, please email with your topic interests or a title of a recent or forthcoming book you are interested in reviewing and where you do not personally know the author.

  • Offer to peer review

Peer review assesses the quality of an article before it is published. If you’re interested in blind peer reviewing an article, please email with your area of interest.

  • Submit a topic for a special issue

Special issues in journals focus on one specific topic or area of research. If you have an idea for a special issue which you would like to be involved with as a guest editor or co-editor or just as a suggestion, please email
