Defines good psychological practice for counselling psychologists.
These guidelines for professional practice in counselling psychology are supplementary to the Society's Code of Ethics, which sets a minimum standard below which behaviour should not fall. These guidelines, in contrast, seek to identify what counselling psychologists are expected to do in pursuit of best practice.
The guidelines offer general principles; their implementation is intended to assist and clarify the judgements of individual practitioners subject to their particular circumstances.
