Introduction by Paul Atkinson

I argue here that we psychotherapists in the private sector bear our own share of responsibility for the institutionalization of a two-tier system of psychological care and therapy. We are on aggregate a profession of the self-employed, focused on the self-development of the individual who can afford to pay our fees. As a profession we appear to be relatively blind to the living conditions of the less well-off citizens in our society and to the ethics of collective responsibility.
