Open Letter to Liz Truss

As a trainee counsellor/psychotherapist I often get asked what politics has to do with therapy. It saddens me as there is often a suggestion that to be a therapist I need to leave my personal ethics at the door – and yet, we all abide by an ethical framework. My personal ethics are coloured by my political view in life. I see and experience injustices, and they cannot be ignored.
