This week sees a return to parliament of the Counsellors and Psychotherapists (Regulation) Bill 2014-2015, presented by MP Geraint Davies and supported by a range of politicians.

The Bill attempts to reflect a similar pattern in the USA. Yesterday the Washington D.C. Council banned therapy wrongly termed ‘conversion’ therapy for minors, following California and New Jersey.
