LETTER: Keeping track of psychotherapists

Click to follow
From Dr Anne Zachary

Sir: Bryan Appleyard's sweeping inclusion of psychotherapy in his "Nightmare cures for unhappiness", (3 May) has already prompted considerable concern, in particular his failure to make clear that when seeking treatment, the public in the past has not had enough guidance about the training and credentials of a prospective therapist.

Your readers should know that there is now another register of psychotherapists, specifically psychoanalytic psychotherapists, published by the British Confederation of Psychotherapists.

Yours faithfully,
