Supervisors' Credentials 

On BABCP Accredited CBT training courses - all your supervision will be provided by CBT practitioners accredited with us as this is a requirement for course accreditation. 

On non-accredited courses and after training – to meet Accreditation and Reaccreditation criteria, your supervisor should be a BABCP accredited practitioner. In exceptional circumstances, you can be supervised by a practitioner who meets all the following criteria -

  • qualified in CBT to at least postgraduate level or who has an international qualification and accreditation in CBT, such as EABCT (European Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Therapies) accreditation
  • currently practicing CBT for at least 50% of their own psychotherapeutic practice 
  • receiving specifically CBT supervision and ongoing CBT CPD

Non-accredited supervisors will be asked to write a paragraph describing their CBT credentials on your Supervisor's Report.   

If your supervisor does not meet our criteria, your practice whilst under their supervision cannot be included for the purposes of accreditation or reaccreditation. 

BABCP Supervisor Accreditation – is a voluntary accreditation for members who want to demonstrate that they meet our criteria for supervisory experience, training and supervisory supervision. It is not essential for your supervisor to hold this. 

You can find the full list of accredited supervisors on the CBT Register. Select “CBT Supervisors” from the dropdown menu and leave the name or membership number field blank.
