It is becoming increasingly common for Counsellors to be employed within Clinical Psychology Departments. With increased diversity in professions offering psychological therapies it is imperative to establish appropriate referral allocation systems, ensuring that referrals are seen by the most appropriate professional. The current study addressed this issue through a retrospective analysis of CORE outcome measure data obtained pre-therapy, to establish whether there were quantifiable psychometric differences between clients allocated to clinical psychologists and counsellors respectively. The study was conducted within a primary care psychology service and the data for 157 referrals were examined. This study found no quantifiable differences in CORE outcome scores for referrals allocated to clinical psychologists and counsellors. Possible explanations for the findings and recommendations for future research are outlined.
