Welcome to The Psychologists Protection Society

The Psychologists Protection Society is here to protect practicing professionals and trainees in the talking and listening therapies.  Although originally limited to members from the field of psychology, members now include counsellors, psychotherapists, play therapists, art therapists, music therapists, drama therapists and similar related groups.  We’re a not for profit membership organisation, providing tailored specialist products, support and services to members resident in the UK and The Republic of Ireland.
