Independent Practitioners Special Interest Group (IPSIG)

Do you work as an independent CBT practitioner, or might you be thinking about independent practice?

If yes, join the BABCP Independent Practitioners Special Interest Group (IPSIG) which was established in 2003. All members of BABCP are welcome.

The purpose of IPSIG is to represent the interest of full and part-time independent practitioners and to bring matters affecting independent practice to the attention of the Association.

It aims to ensure that issues of independent practice, and any problems arising from it, are addressed and resolved in accordance with the guidelines for good practice of the BABCP. Membership is free and all IPSIG members benefit from:

  • reduced rates at nationwide specialised workshops and conferences with topics relating to working in independent practice

  • being part of a forum of independent practitioners and be kept up to date with recent developments

  • having access to useful materials (articles and downloads), documents and information needed to work successfully in independent practice

  • being able to advertise your practice on our website directory

  • networking opportunities to find supervision, regional groups, peers with similar interests or simply support with anything related to working in independent practice
