Are you a member yet? Membership is open to all and is the first step towards accreditation.
We are now accepting Provisional Applications (and KSA portfolios) through an online applications process.
Provisional Accreditation is the first stage of accreditation. As long as you meet the criteria, you can apply at any time once you have evidence of graduation from your CBT training - there is no time limit - but you must be in CBT practice.
If you have completed a Level 2 BABCP Accredited course you should complete a Level 2 Provisional Application.
The second stage is to apply for Full Accreditation 12 months after the award of Provisional Accreditation. You can extend this upon request to 18 months if you completed a Level 2 BABCP Accredited Training Course.
Provisionally accredited therapists appear on the CBT Register. They can practise and supervise in the same roles as fully accredited therapists, depending on experience.
Graduates of BABCP Level 2 accredited courses should use the Level 2 Provisional Application form which is submitted by email.
All other applicants should use the following form. Please disregard instructions to post the form - you must use the electronic applications process in the instructions above.
Consult these guidelines to help with completing your application
This should be completed by your current supervisor. If you have been seeing this supervisor for less than six months, please also provide a report from you previous supervisor.
