consideration Metta.org.uk supports the petition to broaden the therapies
available within the NHS and that they should go beyond Cognitive
Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and similar forms of
therapeutic approach to mental health - Sign the petition to the government. The
petition asks government to consider other psychotherapy approaches, not only
CBT, in the proposed expansion of psychotherapeutic services within the NHS,
instead of restricting choice for members of the public to one only model of
Details from petition: The proposal
by Lord Layard to increase by 10,000 the number of cbt therapists in the NHS

of helping to alleviate distress and to change lives.

25 January 2007 - Questions have been
raised regarding censorship within the forums.
Some names of individuals were removed (within
the Yoga Forum) for legal reasons. If someone says person x is no good it is
subjective. But if someone does this within a forum the "victim" could take
legal action unless there is legal proof of fact. We have been contacted by
solicitors in the past threatening us with defamation proceedings and do not
wish to go down that avenue again. Whilst we appreciate all views,
personal attacks are unwelcome within the forums, never mind the legal
ramifications. We endeavour to remove offensive posts and a number have been
removed for this reason. However there is also the issue of freedom of speech
and we try to draw a balance.
