CPC Code of Coduct

We have developed a code of ethics for registered counsellors

The code of conduct has been developed to ensure the highest levels of professionalism within the CPC community.

The code of conduct for the CPC members covers the scope of work for counsellors, the core principles of being a counsellor and the outlines overall behaviours1 to be exhibited via the members.

It is a community effort to ensure that the code of conduct adheres to. From our members obeying the code of conduct, the wider counselling community reporting members activities contravening the code of conduct and the mitigating role we play together we can improve the standards and practice within the counselling profession.

Complaints will be handled on a case by case basis. The conduct of the member will go before a tribunal who will define a ruling and if appropriate punishment for the member. Ultamilty we are here to ensure the smooth running of the industry would like to reach agreements between the defendant and the complainant.
