UKCP and Psychologies magazine partnership

UKCP has extended the offer with Psychologies magazine to raise the profile of high-quality psychotherapies – and our members who provide them.

In May 2017, we announced a special deal for UKCP therapists to be able to join the UKCP channel on LifeLabs, Psychologies’ blogging platform. LifeLabs gives you the chance to reach a potential audience of 1.9 million people with promotion on the Psychologies Facebook and Twitter profiles. We’re very pleased to have extended this offer for our full-clinical members.

The benefits of blogging

Blogging with LifeLabs is a great way to raise your profile with an audience in search of answers for life’s big questions. It is also a way of raising the profile of the profession. Two regular users of the LifeLabs platform have told that they’ve found the experience hugely beneficial:

Fe Robinson says: ‘I’m delighted by the response to my blogging on the LifeLabs channel. LifeLabs has a huge reach and gives me the opportunity to get content out to a really big audience. It gives people a better sense of me than they could otherwise get, and that helps them make a more informed decision about which psychotherapist to work with. I find blogging a useful reflexive discipline and value the LifeLabs platform hugely.’

Brian Martin Shand says: ‘I enjoy writing and find it’s a refreshing change from clinical work, as it is about ‘transmitting’ instead of ‘receiving’. The blogs are intended to be of help and raise awareness of the benefits of psychotherapy, so I aim to write clear, plain, jargon-free English. Generally, though, more power to the UKCP and Psychologies for getting together. It’s a great idea and, to use the jargon I’ve just said I avoid, it’s a win-win for everybody.’
