Service summary

The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) is a leading professional body for counselling and psychotherapy. It is also a key reference point for anyone seeking information on counselling and psychotherapy in the United Kingdom.

The British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy:
 - can help you to find information on counselling
 - help you to locate a therapist in your area, using the Find a Therapist Directory. All professional therapists listed are qualified and regulated by the BACP. 
 - is an accrediting body that sets out the standards and codes of conduct for counsellors and psychotherapists to adhere to.
 - arranges training, events and workshops for therapists
 - produces and circulates a wide range of professional publications which are available for purchase online
 - commissions research to ensure that the industry is up to date and informed 

If counsellors are accredited by the BACP it means they have completed a certain amount of training and practice under supervision of the BACP. Some counsellors are members but not yet accredited which simply means they are working towards their accreditation.
