Information for Organisations

Does your organisation engage trainee or professional counsellors, psychotherapists or psychologists? If so, then you could be eligible for an organisational discount on PPS membership rates.

How it works

  • PPS membership is applied for on an individual basis. However all applications are made and paid for centrally by your organisation.
  • The discount is applied every year and is based on the membership rates for that year.
  • The discount you receive is based upon the total membership applications and renewals over a 12 month period. So, the discount is applied for every 10 members you sign up or renew in that time.
  • You can add new members at any time as and when people join your team.
  • To make administration easier, we contact you quarterly to organise membership renewals.

Why offer PPS membership to your team?

There are many ways your employees or members of your team can benefit from membership of the Psychologists Protection Society. Here are just a few:

1. We protect practicing professionals and students in the talking and listening therapies as they practice by:

  • providing a choice of three different levels of tailored Professional Protection Insurance
  • providing Public Liability Insurance
  • offering access to a FREE legal helpline
  • offering FREE therapy-based support and advice from fellow practitioner

2. Our tailored CPD resources and activities have been developed by fellow therapists to promote professional best practice and help members avoid problems wherever possible.

3. We pay the Professional Protection Insurance excess for your employee or team member if they need to make a claim.

4. Members can apply for financial assistance from our unique Discretionary Trust Fund. This has been used in the past to provide:

  • support with contractual and practice issues
  • counselling sessions
  • mediation

The Psychologists Protection Society office will be closed on Monday as it is a bank holiday here in Scotland. Our email account will be monitored on Monday if you require urgent assistance. ... See MoreSee Less

Announcement: Death of Former PPS Chairman Dr Douglas McFadzean

It is with great sadness that we mourn the loss of former Psychologists Protection Society Trust Chairman Dr Douglas McFadzean. He passed away at home in Stirling, Scotland on Thursday 28th June 2018.

Douglas was one of NHS Scotland’s most experienced counsellors in primary care and was formerly the Executive Director of the professional body COSCA – “Counselling & Psychotherapy in Scotland”. Dr McFadzean was a member of The Psychologists Protection Society for several decades before joining the Board in 2010 to help provide assistance to fellow professionals who find themselves in difficulties. He served as Chairman for just over a year.

PPS Services Director Ewan Murray said “In 2010 my father, PPS founder Sandy Murray decided to turn PPS into a not-for-profit Trust. Dr McFadzean was his first choice as a Trustee, as he knew he would bring wisdom, strength and humour to the role. Sandy was very pleased when Douglas became Chairman, overseeing the organisation’s transition into a not-for-profit Trust. We all came to appreciate Dr McFadzean’s valuable input during his tenure and he remained in contact after his retirement to provide sage advice when needed. I will remember him fondly”.

Dr McFadzean is survived by his wife Christina and two children.
