Does SPI endorse or periodically review the practitioners on this list?
No, a listing is not an endorsement of a practitioner’s quality in any way or a confirmation of any practitioner’s legal authorization to practice as a mental health professional. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute does not review this list for accuracy or to confirm current licensing or registration status. When using this list to choose a practitioner, you must do your own due diligence to determine a practitioner’s licensing or registration status and disciplinary history.
The choice of a practitioner from the listing is entirely up to you and other practitioners exist beyond SPI’s directory which may provide adequate therapeutic services for your specific needs. This listing does not include all practitioners available for your specific needs, nor does SPI intend for this listing to be inclusive. You alone are responsible for researching, interviewing, and selecting a suitable practitioner to meet your specific needs.
How can I evaluate a practitioner for myself?
Here are two helpful resources for choosing a therapist:
UKCP: How to choose a therapist

I have a complaint about a practitioner on the list; what can I do?
Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Institute is an educational organization, not a regulatory or licensing body. SPI is not structured to conduct ethics investigations which offer a protection for both the person being accused and the person making an accusation.
If you wish to make a complaint about a practitioner on the list, you must contact their licensing board or regulatory agency directly.
