Professional Standards Authority


The PSA oversees regulators who ‘register’ health and care professionals working in occupations that Parliament has said must be regulated i.e. doctor, nurse, pharmacist, and paramedic.

Where a profession is not regulated, for example, counselling, the PSA will assess organisations with a member register who are not regulated by law.

Dandelions Counselling looks forward to developing the Counselling and Psychotherapy Membership Association under the guidance of the Professional Standards Authority.
