About our registers
To find out if a therapist is registered with UKCP, you can search our register.
Are all therapists on the UKCP register?
Therapists do not have to register with UKCP or any other organisation, which means that anyone can call themselves a psychotherapist. Choosing a therapist who is UKCP-registered gives you reassurance about their training and qualifications. It means they have agreed to follow ethical codes and standards and to undertake ongoing training and development.
If a therapist is not on our register it may be because:
- they have not applied to be on our register
- we have removed them from our register (check our Complaints Decisions page for more information).
A core element of our service to the public is dealing with concerns and complaints about therapists on our register. We publish decisions arising from complaints cases and information about forthcoming hearings.
