The BACP Register is the first psychological therapists' register to be accredited under a new scheme set up by the Department of Health and administered by an independent body, accountable to Parliament.
Members of the public can now choose a counsellor or psychotherapist belonging to a register approved by the Professional Standards Authority for Health and Social Care.
BACP Registered members should use the Registered logo to promote their professional status, now available in the members area.
Find out more at the BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists website.
