Welcome to Psychotherapists and Counsellors for Social Responsibility

PCSR is a not-for-profit organisation. Our members are therapists, counsellors and other professionals and individuals engaged in supporting our ethos.

We are committed to


  • locating counselling and psychotherapy in its social, political, ecological, and economic context
  • recognising the impact of the political dimension on the client-therapist relationship
  • developing ideas about how social, economic, political, ecological and cultural issues can be integrated into theory and practice
  • identifying and challenging adverse discrimination at all levels within our profession and in the wider world
  • generating action, launching campaigns, and seeking to influence political processes
