Journal of Psychological Therapies is an international peer-reviewed journal, underpinned by the aspiration for a non-doctrinaire, pluralistic attitude to psychotherapy and counselling psychology. It aims to provide a forum for open debate and encourages submissions from different traditions, epistemological positions and theoretical modalities enabling the development of a more open, reflective thinking to philosophy, theory and practice of psychotherapy and counselling psychology. The Journal of Psychological Therapies encourages critical, broad and experimental interpositions in discussions on psychotherapy and counselling psychology. It tends to transcend the methodological and metatheoretical divisions. We welcome submissions using both quantitative and qualitative methods, including ethnographic, autobiographical, and single patient or organisational case studies.
