So Many Reasons to Be a Member

ISPA benefit international

Member Benefits

ISPA was created to become the spiritual home for strategic therapists around the world.

Many strategic therapists found that although they were members of other professional associations, the association did not typically understand the strategic approach. As a result they found it difficult to advance their strategic therapy  skills or expand their knowledge.

ISPA was established to address this gap and provide a vibrant community of like-minded practitioners who can both support your career and enhance your client outcomes.

As an ISPA member you will be part of this exciting, dynamic community committed to working together, advancing our methods, and ultimately, your own practice.

The support of a Professional Association, tailored to the practice of Strategic Psychotherapy, covering a wide range of client interactions and approaches.

We welcome psychotherapists, psychologists, psychiatrists, mental health workers, social workers, hypnotherapists, coaches, NLP practitioners  and of course you!
