Psychotherapists are grouped into five sections based on their different therapeutic approaches.
Accreditation generally takes least seven years of training comprising a primary degree, as well as part-time training in a psychotherapeutic discipline.
Members of professional psychotherapy associations are required to receive on-going supervision on client practice as a necessary part of maintaining their level of membership.
In conjunction with the European Association of Psychotherapy, it has been decided that CPD can be taken in a number of forms.
