Wellbeing practitioners come off the Wellbeing Practitioner section of the CBT Register UK and Ireland for a variety of reasons. For many, this is a choice they actively make, whether it's due to practising outside of the UK, a career break/change of more than two years or retirement.
You can take a break of up to two years and remain on the register. However, in order to renew your registration you need to complete your annual declaration and pay your fees. If you will be out of practice for longer than 12 months after your declaration date, you will also be required to complete a leave of absence form to inform us of this. See more here: Application for Leave of Absence.
If you plan to be out of practice for more than two years, you should complete the de-registration form to remove your name from the register and apply for re-registration when or if you return to practice again.
Once you have been de-registered, you will no longer appear on the Wellbeing Practitioner section of the CBT Register UK and Ireland nor be able to use the BABCP registration logo.
To de-register, you will need to complete all sections of the de-registration form below, including the declarations, and send your completed de-registration form to firstname.lastname@example.org. We aim to process de-registrations within 28 days. Any enquiries about the de-registration process should be sent to email@example.com.
We will notify you once your de-registration request has been received and again when it has been processed.
You can do this up to 30 days before the date you wish to leave our register.

There are a couple of options regarding coming off the Wellbeing Practitioner Register and maintaining BABCP membership. Please note – if your Wellbeing Practitioner Registration renewal date is separate to your membership renewal, you will not be able to amend your membership fee type. Please refer to the de-registration form for more information.
As a Wellbeing Practitioner registered with BABCP, your subscription will either be one subscription fee (covering both your membership and Wellbeing Practitioner fee) or two separate fees; one for the Wellbeing Practitioner and one for the membership, the latter type will have two different anniversary dates. It was set up this way to account for those that were already members of BABCP when the wellbeing practitioner registration was introduced.
You can choose to maintain your BABCP membership without the wellbeing registration. If you keep this subscription you will continue to pay your annual membership fees on your membership renewal date.
If you have not received your anticipated refund within 30 days of de-registering, please contact our Accounts department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
PLEASE NOTE - Wellbeing Practitioner registration can be withdrawn in these circumstances:
If your registration is withdrawn for any of the above reasons, you will no longer appear on the Wellbeing Practitioner section of the CBT Register UK and Ireland.
When you de-register, you will have the option to either maintain or cancel your membership with the BABCP. If you maintain your membership, you will continue to have access to:
Please note failure to pay your membership fees will automatically remove you from the CBT Register UK and Ireland.
