There are specific accreditation bodies that monitor and assure the highest level of practice and qualification standards. These are BACP, EMDR Association, and BABCP.
When you are looking for the therapist’s accreditation, it’s important to look for their name listed as accredited, in addition to being listed as a member of the BABCP. Being a “member” is not the same as being accredited to practice.
Counsellors and psychotherapists (in any form of psychotherapy) are usually listed and accredited by BACP. CBT therapy training standard is controlled and monitored by the British Association of Behavioural & Cognitive Psychotherapy, BABCP. If you are looking for a CBT trained therapist, please visit the BABCP website. You will find all of our therapists accredited and listed on BABCP.

It is a unique, powerful therapy that helps people recover from problems triggered by traumatic events in their lives.
