UKCP membership
The School is an accrediting organisation within the Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy (UKCP). The ADIP is the final stage of training leading to UKCP registration. Membership requires the completion of a minimum of 450 hours of supervised clinical practice.

BACP accreditation
At the end of Year 1, you may have enough training hours to apply for individual accreditation with the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP). The BACP also requires candidates to show evidence of 450 hours of supervised clinical practice. Application to BACP can only be done by the individual and the School is unable to play a role in this process.


This course allows registration with the Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapy College of the United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy.
