acc news logo

ACC note that the UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) has taken the decision to withdraw its signature from the Memorandum of Understanding on Conversion Therapy in the UK v2 (MoU) and its membership of the Coalition Against Conversion Therapy. You can read the UKCP statement in full here. ACC will be asking for a discussion with the coalition about the concerns that have led UKCP to this decision. 

ACC are in discussion with UKCP and the other professional bodies and intend to work together with them to explore setting out new guidelines relating to conversion therapy, with a specific focus on counselling and psychotherapy practice. We believe that this is in the best interest of our members, their clients, and of the profession itself.

 ACC remain firm in our opposition to conversion therapy.
