To gain accreditation with the BABCP, CBT therapists need to have a core professional training and be able to demonstrate commitment to the practice of CBT for at least 50% of their time. Accredited therapists have completed specialist CBT training and have supervised experience of practicing CBT. They abide to a code of practice, engage in continuum professional development and receive regular clinical supervision. Accreditation is renewable every five years.

  • Accreditation by the BABCP demonstrates that the therapist has been thoroughly vetted, and guarantees a commitment to the practice of CBT, to regular and relevant professional development and to abiding to a code of ethics and practice, which ultimately protects the client.
