Suffolk CounsellorsRegistration Body
BACP (British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy)
BACP is the main professional
body for Counselling & Psychotherapy. Although, some professionals
may be members and or accredited with other organisations, such as
Psychology or Psychotherapy. BACP is similar to the Nursing Profession
where nurses are members of RCN their registration body.
As members of BACP we operate to their strict code of ethics and practice, which includes having a minimum of 1½ hours supervision per month. Supervision is for the benefit of the client, to ensure they are getting the best service and is with a BACP/or UKCP registered/accredited therapist.
After a counsellor/psychotherapist has completed all their training & been practicing to the minimum BACP requirements for a minimum of 3 years, they can apply for BACP Accreditation with submission of their portfolio providing evidence that they meet all the criteria.
Once a therapist is accredited, they must undertake CPD (Continuing Professional Development) each year to satisfy renewal of accreditation.
Katie obtained her accreditation December 2003, whilst Donna & Des as members of BACP are currently working towards this position.
