ACTO

About us

History

A group of online therapists formed the Association for Counselling and Therapy Online (ACTO) in October 2006 because they saw a need for an umbrella organisation in the UK for therapists who practice online.

 

Online

The practice of psychological therapy online is an exciting and relatively new form of therapy and we believe that it will be the way of the future for many who are seeking or offering emotional help.

ACTO is committed to setting and maintaining the highest standards of therapy in online work.

Who can join

Therapists who are members of ACTO are also members of an established professional body such as the BACP/ UKCP/ HPC, and are working within agreed codes of ethics, including ACTO’s Ethical Code, and having regular supervision (preferably with a supervisor who is trained and experienced in online work). We strongly recommend that our member practitioners have professional indemnity insurance.

All full members of ACTO comply with the above conditions and are qualified and experienced therapists who work online, most of whom have completed further training for online work.
