About Us

PCSR: LOCATING PSYCHOTHERAPY AND COUNSELLING IN A SOCIO-POLITICAL CONTEXT

We are psychotherapists, counsellors and other professionals who:


• recognise the impact of the political dimension on the client- practitioner
relationship
• develop ideas about how social, political, environmental and cultural
issues can be integrated into theory and practice
• address and challenge racism, sexism, homophobia and classism as well as other forms of prejudice and discriminatory practice at all levels within our professions
• campaign for better provision of statutory and low-cost counselling or
psychotherapy services
pcsr and this website is a forum for psychotherapists and counsellors who want to influence and broaden the political process by:
• contributing psychological perspectives to debates on current social, cultural,
environmental and political issues
