BACP Register

The BACP Register of Counsellors & Psychotherapists registers therapists who have met our standards for entry. It is important you feel confident that the counsellor or psychotherapist you choose will provide you with a quality service.

The Register aims to support public protection by:

  • Setting and monitoring standards for therapy practice
  • Ensuring all registrants are signed up to a professional conduct process and ethical framework
  • Producing guidance to help you understand the professional conduct process and when it is appropriate to make a complaint.

The register holds details of all its registrants, and you can search here to see if your therapist is on the Register.

Some therapists will also be listed on Find a therapist; our online directory of therapists in private practice. This will give you more detail about the work of individual therapists and enable you to find a therapist that you can approach directly.

On Find a therapist, registered members will display the registered logo.

BACP members who hold BACP accreditation will display the accredited logo.
