Member organisations

Registered / Accredited

Registered / Accredited

Being registered/accredited with a professional body means an individual must have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by their member organisation.


British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


UK Council for Psychotherapy

The UK Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP) is a leading professional body for the education, training and regulation of psychotherapists and psychotherapeutic counsellors. Its register is accredited by the government's Professional Standards Authority.

As part of its commitment to protect the public, it works to improve access to psychotherapy, to support and disseminate research, to improve standards and to respond effectively to complaints against its members.

UKCP standards cover the range of different psychotherapies. Registration is obtained by training or accrediting with one of its member organisations, or by holding a European Certificate in Psychotherapy. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Further information

What is Psychotherapy?

Psychotherapy is about enabling a person to make changes in his/her life, which would be of benefit. This often involves a clearer understanding of what to having a particular problem in the first place. A painful situation in the present may have its roots in the past, but the individual may not be aware of the connection. Psychotherapy assists a person to uncover these hidden links, which in turn allows the individual greater freedom of thought and action.

Human beings have a tendency to repeat patterns of behaviour, and even when they would like to change, they find themselves unable to do so. These patterns may repeat themselves in the consulting room, and this enables the patient to look at his/her behaviour without fear of rejection or retaliation.

The relationship between the therapist and the patient is central to the work being done. As part of their training, all therapists have had their own personal therapy. This is an essential experience for psychotherapists in their work with patients. This is because it allows the therapist a greater inner freedom and enables him/her to have a clearer understanding of the patient’s experience both in and out of the therapeutic relationship.

Psychoanalytic psychotherapy is based, among other things, on the understanding of the unfolding of a person’s life from birth onwards. It also includes an understanding of the network of relationships that develop during growth into adulthood and draws on the insights of psychoanalysis as a way of understanding the human personality, including the way individuals interact with each other. It takes note of the unconscious mind as well as conscious attitudes, and aids the resolution of unconscious conflicts which allows for the development of a person’s full potential.

Sessions are at a regular time every week and the treatment may last several months or years, depending on the scope and depth of the treatment. Psychoanalytic/psychodynamic psychotherapy and psychoanalysis is conducted from one to five times per week and each session lasts 50 minutes.

It would be simplistic to say that the difference between psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy is based on frequency of sessions, but frequency is a way of indicating the depth of work in relation to unconscious dynamics, transference and countertransference. Whether psychoanalytic or psychodynamic psychotherapy is the treatment of choice for you depends on a variety of factors. It is often helpful to have one or more preliminary consultations before deciding how best to proceed.

Wheelchair user access

Wheelchair-accessible premises should have step-free access for wheelchair users and individuals who are unable to climb stairs. If a counsellor's premises aren't step-free, they may offer alternative services such as telephone/web-based appointments, home visits, or meeting clients in different location, so you can choose the option that suits you best.

You can contact the counsellor to discuss the options available.

Under the Equality Act 2010 service providers have a duty to make reasonable adjustments to ensure that individuals with disabilities can access their service. You can read more about reasonable adjustments to help you to access services on the CAB website.
