Alan Frankland

Alan Frankland is a psychologist who has been counselling now for over 25 years. He has a busy independent therapy and supervision practice (APSI) in Nottingham. Formerly Principal Lecturer and Head of the Division of Counselling and Psychotherapy at Nottingham Trent University where there used to be a BACP Accredited Counsellor Training programme, he is now the BPS Stipendiary Registrar for Counselling Psychology, and his direct training activities are currently confined to relatively small contributions to the professional programmes run by various independent Person-Centred training schemes in the UK and France. A Fellow of BACP and a BPS Chartered Counselling Psychologist, he has served on committees within both organizations for many years. His current work with BPS mirrors an earlier (non-stipendiary) role he had with BAC when he chaired the Individual Accreditation process for some years. He is a former Chair of the BPS Division of Counselling Psychology and was for a time an elected member of Council and the BPS Board of Directors. He has recently joined the Co-ordinating Group of BAPCA. Occasionally he still finds time to write both for PCCS. Turning one's hobby into one's job sometimes makes it difficult to stop work, but Alan also loves food and beer, wine and cats and crosswords, and getting away to his French rural retreat as often as possible.
