For any of you that have scoured my website, you may have seen a statement saying ‘Kirsty is qualified to be a member of the British Psychological Society’ (The BPS). The reason I have this statement is that I know that some believe that membership of a professional body is important. For those people, please rest assured that I have the relevant qualifications (as evidenced by the fact that I have been a member on and off for a couple of decades). However, I have chosen to no longer associate with the organisation – despite the fact that it is our accrediting body. The reasons for this decision are detailed here, and I will very happily discuss them further with anyone who wishes to engage.
