The Cape High Court made an order on the 14th November 2016 declaring the psychologists’ Scopes of Practice regulations issued by the Minister of Health in 2011, invalid. JASA (the Justice Alliance of South Africa) and ReLPAG (Recognition of Life Long Learning in Psychology Action Group) had challenged the validity of the regulations. The Board of Healthcare Funders, the fifth respondent, has agreed to abide by the outcome of the case, and consequently its members and the other medical aids, many of whom refused to pay Psychologists purportedly working outside the Scope of Practice, will need to resume making payments.

The IGCCP (under the auspices of SIOPSA) is working closely with its international peers in order to professionalise the coaching industry, as professional bodies have an important and strategic role to play in this process. Both the International Society for Coaching Psychology (ISCP) and the British Psychological Society (BPS) have already embarked on a process to provide their members with recognition of their coaching-specific expertise.
In this regard, having already published a Code of Practice for Registered Psychology Practitioners in Coaching as a first step, the IGCCPSA will now be launching South Africa’s List of Coaching Practitioners (LoCP).
