Our online therapist directory aims to help people find the right counselling professional for them, based on their location, preferences and reasons for seeking therapy.
Our directory is designed to be accessible and user-friendly, making it easy to search for therapists. It is open only to BACP registered members and BACP accredited services, assuring potential clients that all the practitioners listed are qualified, trained professionals who are accountable to our Ethical Framework.
Supervisors and trainers
Our directory also includes supervisor and trainer listings, allowing supervisors and training providers to promote their services to other counselling professionals.
The directory is a paid-for advertising service, available only to the following membership categories:
- Registered Member MBACP
- Registered Member MBACP (Accred)
- Registered Member MBACP (Snr Accred)
- BACP Accredited Service
Individual members, student members and retired members cannot join the directory.
This is a different service to the BACP Register which is a public record of counselling professionals who meet our standards for registration. All BACP registered members have their name, registration number and membership grade listed on the BACP Register.

Your subscription entitles you to up to six separate listings (made up of any combination of therapist, supervisor and trainer listings).
Your directory renewal will be synchronised with your membership renewal. So if you join the directory part-way through your membership year, the fee will be based on a monthly rate to cover the period until your membership renewal is due.
Update your listing
You can update your listing at any time by logging into your account and editing your profile. Your changes will be submitted to us for approval before going live.
Renew your listing
If you had a directory listing before February 2018, your next directory renewal fee will cover the period up to your next membership renewal date. After that, your directory renewal will be synchronised with your membership renewal. This means you'll renew all your BACP subscriptions at the same time once a year.
You'll be able to renew your listing online and we'll email you to let you know when your renewal is due. You won't get any more letters from us reminding you to renew your listing - all reminders will be sent by email.
To make sure you get your renewal emails and in order to access the member-only resources on our website, it’s vital that we have an up-to-date email address for you. Log in to your account to amend or add your email information.
