Russell-Cooke advised The British Association of Psychotherapists, the Lincoln Clinic and Centre for Psychotherapy and the London Centre for Psychotherapy on its recent merger.
With effect from 31 March 2013, these charities are coming together to form the British Psychotherapy Foundation (BPF), a new and powerful organisation in the psychotherapy and mental health sector.
The merger will enable BPF to be a larger and stronger professional organisation, providing access to treatment for the public, comprehensive support to members and education and training to the next generation of psychotherapists.
The three founding organisations each have a history of service to patients, trainees and members of the mental health sector and as the BPF develops it will take with it the very best from these traditions in order to make a serious contribution to emotional well being and mental health within the UK. BPF will be a dynamic organisation that identifies areas of need and opportunity and addresses these creatively and purposefully in ways that benefit all groups within the UK population.
