LGBT History Month – Bisexuality, Biphobia and BiErasure

February in the UK is LGBT History Month, a time to recognise LGBT issues, topics and history. It's incredibly important to the community, but I also feel it's important for society as a whole.

CTUK gets some answers from the BACP: Question 4

The CTUK community sent a series of questions to the BACP (and I believe also the UKCP, BPC etc) to get some clarity on the issues that will impact on us. On 15th December they published the answers that they received from the BACP. I’m very surprised that they heard something back before Christmas! Their published answers have not been analysed by CTUK, so I thought I’d look at the issues and highlight some of the key parts that I picked up.

Open Letter to Liz Truss

As a trainee counsellor/psychotherapist I often get asked what politics has to do with therapy.
