During the nearly 30 years I have been practicing I have assisted many supervisees to gain accreditation - mostly through BACP (see links). However for many years I opted not to go down the accreditation route as I have some serious concerns with it's credibility in guaranteeing any quality of practice or safety from harm. In that light I have been involved in campaigning against the state regulation of psychotherapy (a major driver behind accreditation) and have actively supported the IPN model of accountability. The IPN group that I was in achieved full membership status of the Network and lasted for over a decade. Since that group finished in 2009 - itself a testament to the quality of the IPN process as 'standing by' requires constant refreshing - I have joined the UKAHPP as a member 'seeking accreditation' and subsequently received registration with UKCP. I am also a registered member with BACP as many training courses now require that as a minimum.
If you would like to know more about my concerns with 'accreditation' please use the contact form to email me or have a look at the the links for 'The Alliance', Independant Practitioners Network and Ipnosis.
Following some changes in the professional landscape I have resigned my membership of UKAHPP and am now a direct registrant with UKCP (the PCIPC college). I remain a registered member of BACP
