Organisational membership

There are many reasons to join UKCP. Membership is a mark of quality that recognises your organisation’s high standards of training, professional and ethical practice. Becoming a member can enhance the standing of your training courses as well as opening the door to a range of resources and professional networks.

Organisational members can hold one or more of the following functions:

  • Training only
  • Training and accrediting their own graduates
  • Training and accrediting their own graduates, but also accrediting non-UKCP-trained professionals
  • Accrediting only – including accrediting other training programmes and individuals who trained at those or other training programmes
  • Listing – only reaccrediting current UKCP registrants

We welcome applications for membership from new organisations. To become a UKCP organisational member, your organisation must:

  • be relevant to psychotherapy or psychotherapeutic counselling and support UKCP’s aims and objectives
  • have been in existence for at least three years before applying for UKCP membership
  • possess an accountable financial and administrative structure compatible with UKCP’s Memorandum and Articles of Association
  • not be a sub-unit or branch of any organisation or institution which is separately eligible for membership
  • have a code of ethics and practice compatible with UKCP requirements
  • be viable to UKCP.
