Divisional membership is of value to anyone working within these specific fields of counselling. Each division publishes a quarterly journal and provides member-only benefits, including specialist resources and events.
Formerly BACP Children and Young People, the division changed its name in February 2018 to recognise the importance of the family in working with young clients. BACP CYPF is for practitioners and other professionals interested in counselling and psychotherapy for children and young people. We aim to promote counselling and psychotherapy as a rightful entitlement and work for greater accessibility to services.
BACP Coaching is a focus for coaches and coaching within BACP. We seek to promote ethical, effective and professional coaching for the wellbeing and enhancement of individuals and organisations. Our members are counsellors and psychotherapists who work with a variety of models to integrate coaching and counselling across coaching practice, research and academia. This includes the domains of personal and life, workplace and executive, education, social care and healthcare.
BACP Healthcare is a forum for counsellors, psychotherapists and related professionals providing psychological therapies in healthcare settings in the public, private and third sectors. We aim to promote and support patient choice, accessible services, clinical excellence, competent and professional therapists and effective service delivery.
BACP Private Practice supports members who work in, or are about to embark upon, counselling or psychotherapy in private practice. For those who may feel isolated working on their own, we aim to provide a sense of professional belonging and community, share training opportunities and support professional development.
BACP Spirituality is for counsellors, psychotherapists, pastoral carers, chaplains and related professionals whose work is informed by a spiritual perspective. It offers a rich opportunity to make links with others who share and are interested in a broad range of related subjects and beliefs.
BACP Universities and Colleges (BACP UC) is for those involved in the management and delivery of counselling services in further education, higher education and sixth form colleges. We promote and support the status of members working in these settings and represent the sector in debates about policy and practice at national level.
BACP Workplace promotes and supports the professional practice of counselling in the workplace, and practitioners who have clients experiencing workplace concerns. We welcome anyone interested in the psychological and emotional aspects of health at work, the provision of counselling in the workplace, or workplace related issues.
