As part of our role as an accredited voluntary register, we set standards which our Registrants must commit to and maintain to ensure the public is protected and to help create a safe and effective therapeutic relationship with clients. Our Ethical framework is designed to ensure our Registrants have a minimum and common basis to work from.
Registrants must practice in accordance with our Ethical Framework
Our Ethical standards ensure our Registrants commit to good practice and work in an ethical way so that their clients are protected and their emotional health and well being is safeguarded. In order for our Psychoanalysts to become Registrants of the BPC, they must commit to our Ethical Framework as part of their registration.
Our Ethical Framework is set out in two documents entitled, our Code of Ethics and our Ethical Guidelines. Both of which are downloadable below.
Our Ethical standards are regularly reviewed by our Ethics Committee to ensure they are relevant and reflect and respond to our ever-changing world and its developments.
If you are a member of the public who has been engaged in therapy with a Registrant and would like to discuss a potential ethical concern that has arisen during your therapy, please email us with an account of your concern and contact details.
