Looking for a psychotherapist?
If you are looking for a psychotherapist to contact in your area, the yellow pages are a good place to start. In addition, you may find the following websites helpful; however, please note that not all persons listed on these websites will be registered psychotherapists, and may be health providers of other varieties, for example, counsellors.
Before making an appointment with a psychotherapist, be sure to check that they are listed in the Board's 'Register of Psychotherapists' and that the Register indicates that they have a current practising certificate.
Note: Psychotherapy Associations are independent of the Board and have their own operating structure, Code of Ethics and process for considering complaints.
