This paper responds to key points raised in Launagani's article (this issue).
In particular, it focuses on the effectiveness of therapy and questions whether or not therapy is dangerous.
Also it considers the future of counselling, counselling psychology and psychotherapy and predicts that therapies that do not adapt to brief or time-limited settings may become relegated to private practice.
Treatment manuals based on techniques and strategies and not particular therapies will be developed which may include recommendations for the type of interpersonal approach required for different clients.
It concludes that due to pressure of work, members of the therapeutic professions will have less time to sit on committees in support of their professional bodies.
