UKCP colleges are collections of members – organisational or individual – who share a philosophy of psychotherapy.
Each college holds standards for education, training and practice that are compatible with UKCP’s generic standards and with the individual college’s philosophy.
Colleges are responsible for accepting applicants into full membership of UKCP and all existing members must belong to a college.
