British Association for Behavioral Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP)

< Back to directory


We are the lead organisation for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in the UK and Ireland. We promote, improve and uphold standards of CBT practice, supervision and training.

We support our members to develop professionally and link with the CBT community. We are a professional association operating a highly-respected voluntary register for our accredited cognitive-behavioural psychotherapists, and help to protect the public by supporting best practices.

CBT practitioners who can demonstrate they meet our standards of education, training, supervision, work experience and other areas of personal development can apply to become accredited. As of June 2020, we have over 7,500 accredited practitioner members.

Higher education courses that can demonstrate they meet our standards of education and training can also apply for accreditation. We accredit over 50 university courses.

Training and development opportunities for members are provided via training events, conferences, journals and good practice guides, among other services.
