PSA Accreditation of the CBT Register 

7 July 2023

The BABCP Board welcomes the accreditation of our CBT Register by the Professional Standards Authority (PSA). 

BABCP-Accredited CBT Therapists, Evidence-Based Parent Trainers and Registered Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners, Children’s Wellbeing Practitioners and Education Mental Health Practitioners working in the UK will now also have the PSA’s Quality Mark on their entry in the CBT Register.

BABCP President Saiqa Naz said: "I am thrilled that the PSA has approved accreditation of our CBT register. This formal approval pays testament to the commitment of staff and volunteers at BABCP, and is recognition of our commitment to protection of the public, and of the high standards at which our registered therapists and practitioners work."

BABCP Chief Executive Officer Tommy McIlravey said ”This is a significant moment in the history of BABCP. PSA accreditation helps further some of our core strategic aims, such as increasing public awareness of, and confidence in, CBT treatments. It is an important milestone for all our members in the UK, as their work is now on a footing with other professionals on PSA-accredited professional registers.“
