BACP Register of Counsellors and Psychotherapists (2023)

The Accredited Registers programme

The BACP Register was one of the first registers to be assessed and accredited under the Professional Standards Authority (the Authority) Accredited Registers programme. It must be reaccredited every year to demonstrate that it meets the Authority’s high standards of governance, standard-setting, education and training, management, complaints and information.

The Authority is an independent body accountable to Government. It developed the Accredited Registers programme to provide quality standards for practitioners working across health and social care settings that are not regulated by law.

Accredited registers help people get better care by ensuring that registered health practitioners are competent and trustworthy. The registers are promoted by the Department of Health and the Authority as the first place to look for practitioners, which intends that registration will become a requirement for some employment opportunities.

Information sharing protocol

Together with 17 other organisations running accredited registers, we've signed up to an information sharing protocol. We've all agreed to inform each other about, and to take into account, decisions made through the other organisations' professional conduct proceedings which have resulted in an individual being removed from a register.

You can read the full protocol below.
