These guidelines have been written to enable appropriately qualified Psychologists to apply for membership of the Division of Psychotherapy and to use the designation Chartered Psychologist Specialising in Psychotherapy. Admission to the Division will only be available to Chartered Psychologists who have appropriate training and experience in practising psychotherapy. The initial path to membership of the Division for many psychologists will be via the Grandparenting route. This route will be available until 30 September 2019.
In the absence of accredited psychotherapy courses, PSI recognises that it will be necessary to evaluate applications in a flexible manner, which takes into account the more diverse routes and training experiences (Grandparenting route). Nevertheless, applicants must be able to demonstrate that they have a good understanding of the way that their practice is related to the eligibility criteria and that they have sufficient skill to practice at the level of expertise required. The Application Form has been designed to elicit the applicant’s depth and breadth of training and experience in psychotherapy.
Membership of the Division will allow psychologists to have public recognition of their psychotherapy skills. It will increasingly provide recognition of competence for employment purposes and will provide the public with identification of those who are appropriately qualified and skilled as Psychologists Specialising in Psychotherapy. Furthermore, it will indicate that those who are members are committed to ongoing personal development and professional training relevant to the practice of psychotherapy and subject to an ethical regime.
