New Psychotherapist

New Psychotherapist – Issue 75, autumn 2020

September 2, 2020

Each edition of the New 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 New Psychotherapist is published three times a year – spring, summer and autumn.

The main differences between psychotherapists, psychologists, and other mental health professionals are not clear outside the profession, with many using the terms interchangeably. But how does this affect the offer and availability of psychotherapy in the NHS for those who need it but can’t afford it?

In this issue of New Psychotherapist, we talk to SNP MP Dr Lisa Cameron, the first clinical psychologist elected to Parliament, about how psychotherapy has a crucial role to play in the NHS.

We also look at the challenges and opportunities for training the next generation of practitioners to ensure a more diverse profession, while celebrating the breath of work of psychotherapists in the UK.

And, as we continue to work remotely, Ronen Stilman explores how professionals can work with individuals who face challenges related to their online identities.
