The aim of the study was to obtain data reflecting NHS clinical psychologists'perceptions of counselling psychologists.
A 19-item questionnaire was devised and sent by post to 303 clinical psychology departments throughout the United Kingdom in July 1995. 161 replies were received from areas including mental health, community care, general hospital, neurological rehabilitation, learning disabilities and combinations of these.
Results showed considerable confusion among clinical psychologists around the identity and competencies of counselling psychologists.
Much of this confusion seems to be attributable to a lack of information regarding the content of training and a lack of awareness that counselling psychologists are now chartered under the auspices of the British Psychological Society.
The survey suggests that counselling psychologists should work to clarify their identity and increase communication with professional colleagues before their contribution to the provision of psychological care can be recognised.
