What is Accreditation?

BABCP is the lead organisation for cognitive and behavioural therapies in the UK. We provide practitioner accreditation for CBT therapists living and working in the UK and Ireland.

Accreditation means that a CBT therapist has both core professional mental health training or recognised equivalent; as well as specific CBT training. In order to be accredited, BABCP and AREBT members must have applied and demonstrated that they meet high standards of training and experience in CBT. They also commit to maintaining our standards of clinical practice, clinical supervision and continuing professional development activities. Accredited members are audited to ensure that they continue to meet these expectations.

The CBT Register UK is a public register of accredited BABCP and AREBT members. The aim of the Register is to protect the public, employers and other agencies by helping them find CBT therapists who have met our required standards.

All members agree to abide by BABCP/AREBT Standards of Conduct, Performance and Ethics [PDF]. Complaints about members who may have breached these standards can be made using the complaints and disciplinary process.  for BABCP and AREBT members.

We also provide accreditation for CBT supervisors and trainers and accredit CBT training courses at two levels.
