Jessica Kingsley Publishers (JKP) is a wholly independent company, committed to publishing books that make a difference.

The company was founded in 1987 in London by Jessica Kingsley and has grown since then to now publish over 250 books a year. JKP is known for long established lists on the autism spectrum, social work, and arts therapies. More recently they have published extensively in the fields of mental health, counselling, palliative care, and practical theology. JKP has a range of graphic novels across these subject areas, and books for children, on issues including bereavement, depression and anger. In 2016, JKP was awarded Independent Academic, Educational and Professional Publisher of the Year by the British Book Industry Awards.

In 2006 a new imprint, Singing Dragon, was born.
