Professional Registration

The standards of training and practice of Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists are regulated by the Association of Child Psychotherapists (ACP). Qualified Child and Adolescent Psychotherapists must be a registered member of the ACP and appear on the ACP Register which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.  

Trainees must be Trainee Members of the ACP. Full registration is awarded on completion of an accredited training, and members must renew their registration on an annual basis as laid out in the Rules of the ACP and the CPD Policy

Members can apply to re-register with the ACP if they have previously resigned in keeping with the Return to Work Policy

It is also possible under certain circumstances to apply to have previous training recognised and accredited with the ACP. Further information about the Accreditation of Prior Learning can be found here.
