Register and Standards

The Association of Child Psychotherapists holds a register of psychoanalytic child and adolescent psychotherapists all of whom have met its standards for registration. This is a register which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.


Standards for registration include training at an accredited training school, ongoing supervision, continuing professional development and a commitment to our ethical code. 


The ACP is committed to ensuring patients receive the highest standard of care and are treated by appropriately trained and regulated practitioners. Our members are trained to work with children and young people from birth to age twenty five as well as parents, carers and other professionals. If you fall outside this age range we recommend you seek a suitably qualified and registered practitioner. If you click here you will be able to search Accredited Registers where you may find a suitably qualified adult psychodynamic or psychoanalytic psychotherapist.
