Welcome to the Ontario Society of Psychotherapists


Raising the Standards of Psychotherapy

OSP is a not-for-profit professional association that provides support, networking, and educational opportunities for Registered Psychotherapists. We also create awareness for the general public through education about the nature and benefits of psychotherapy. 

Advocacy and Protection in a Community of Highly Professional Psychotherapists

For Registered Psychotherapists practising across Ontario, OSP provides a professional home, a community where advocacy, continuing education, and dispute resolution are shared to expand our collective and individual knowledge. OSP protects the rights of psychotherapists, whereas the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO) protects the rights of the public. Learn more about the benefits of membership.

Diverse Skills 

The Ontario Society of Psychotherapists represents a diverse community of psychotherapists practising in a wide variety of modalities. We do not subscribe to any one modality of psychotherapy but believe that the diversity in our community is one of our great assets. Many of our practitioners combine a number of different therapeutic approaches, depending on the clients’ needs.

While our members practise across this spectrum of modalities, they are all part of a larger community that is working together to set a higher standard for the practice of psychotherapy in Ontario. At OSP, our standards for our members exceed those of the College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (CRPO), so you can trust the professionalism and training of an OSP member. One of the important standards that set us apart is that we require all of our Clinical members to have had at least 150 hours of personal therapy. This is a value that raises the bar from the standards set by the College. Find out what sets us apart.
