British Psychoanalytic Council (formerly British Confederation of Psychotherapists)

The British Psychoanalytic Council is a professional association and voluntary regulator of the psychoanalytic psychotherapy profession, publishing a Register of practitioners who are required to follow our ethical code and meet our fitness to practice standards. We promote excellence in psychoanalytic thinking and psychotherapy; safeguard the public; promote the highest standards of training and research; and work to make psychoanalytic psychotherapy accessible to all.

The BPC is working towards a future where psychoanalysis is acknowledged as a theory of mind that can support policy development to tackle society’s ills; and psychoanalytically informed work is routinely made available as a treatment to anyone in emotional distress, whatever their gender, ethnicity, sexuality, disability or income.

The BPC exists to promote excellence in psychoanalytic thinking; safeguard the public; promote training and research; and make psychoanalysis accessible to all in society. Our key objectives are:
•Protecting the public
•Leading and supporting the psychoanalytic community
•Promoting the profession
•Facilitating informed debate and leading edge thinking
•Building a sustainable and professional organisation

There are around 1450 registrants of the BPC, working across the public, voluntary and private practice sectors. Many of our members are senior consultant psychiatrists, clinical psychologists and leading figures in the field of mental health.
