Child and adolescent psychotherapists also play an important role supporting other professionals who work with children and young people, including teachers, social workers, youth workers and other mental health professionals. They do this through training, supervision and consultation.

Most child and adolescent psychotherapists work within the NHS as part of Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service (CAMHS) teams. Our members also work in social services, schools, hospitals, specialist clinics, the voluntary sector and in private practice.

The ACP is an accredited register of the Professional Standards Authority. The latest panel decision can be found here.
