Code of Ethics

Code of Ethics and Professional Practice

FiP has adopted the UKCP Code of Ethics and Professional Practice (The Code) in its entirety.


On joining FiP all members, irrespective of their FiP membership category, are required to confirm that they agree to abide by FiP’s (i.e. UKCP’s) Code of Ethics and Professional Practice.

The Code contains the standards of ethics, practice and conduct which UKCP expects of all practitioners which must be followed whatever the modality of practice and whether clients are seen in person, online or otherwise. Should a concern arise about a practitioner’s practice, it is against the standards set out in the Code that it will be judged under the relevant complaints and conduct processes.


Members are required to maintain appropriate professional insurance and should ensure they are aware of and comply with, their insurer’s requirements to report.
