Are you a member yet? Membership is open to all and is the first step towards accreditation.
Accreditation is voluntary. You don't have to be accredited to legally practice in the UK - either privately or in a service. However most employers and agencies ask for it.
This is the first stage of accreditation for all applicants, regardless of experience.
When you get Provisional Accreditation, your name will appear on the CBT Register to confirm that you are an accredited therapist.
You must keep up professional standards of CBT practice, CPD and supervision once you are provisionally accredited. The Full Accreditation application is the way that we check this after twelve months of accreditation.
Once you are fully accredited you will submit an annual Reaccreditation Declaration which we may check through a Reaccreditation audit.
The CBT Register is a list of members who hold BABCP Accreditation. Its aim is to protect the public by listing practitioners who have met our professional and training standards.
It is consulted by individuals, employers and agencies and is the only way to check a therapists' current accredited status.
You can make a yearly payment for an enhanced listing which can provide a link to your contact details and webpage.
You can find the costs of all Accreditations and related processes at Accreditation Fees.
You must be a member to apply for accreditation and membership fees are separate to Accreditation fees.
Experienced therapists who have been fully accredited for at least three years can have this experience recognised through Supervisor and/or Trainer Accreditation if they meet the criteria.
BABCP provides different types of Course Accreditation for postgraduate CBT training programmes.
Accreditation shows that a course has met our Minimum Training Standards - the criteria for graduates to become accredited.
