Fully Qualified Accredited Therapists
All our CBT therapists are BABCP Accredited. BABCP stands for the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies. It is the lead organisation for cognitive and behavioural therapies in the UK and Ireland and provides practitioner accreditation for CBT therapists in the UK and Ireland.
Accreditation means that members have demonstrated that they meet high standards of training and experience in CBT and commit to maintaining the BABCP standards of clinical practice, clinical supervision and continuing professional development. Accredited members are audited to ensure that they continue to meet these expectations.
The same applies to our counsellors who are BACP accredited. BACP stands for the British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy. Accreditation means that members have demonstrated that they meet high standards of training and experience in counselling and psychotherapy and commit to maintaining the BACP standards of clinical practice and clinical supervision.
Always check that your therapist is accredited with the relevant professional body according to their therapy modality. There are many practitioners in the private therapy world who offer CBT or counselling but may not have specialist advanced training in providing these.
Accreditation with a professional body ensures that the training that has been completed is to an appropriate UK recognised standard, involving a certain amount of teaching hours and supervised clinical practice and a demonstration of the skills required to practice.
