BACP accreditation schemes aim to recognise the achievement of high standards of knowledge, experience and development in counselling and psychotherapy.
They help clients, employers, practitioners and students to make an informed decision when choosing a therapist, service or training course.
To apply, you must be able to demonstrate that you meet the required standards and complete a rigorous application and assessment process. All our accreditation schemes require current and ongoing membership of BACP.
