Other Online Training Providers

There are other online training providers whom you may wish to undertake training with.  Please note that if you wish to apply for ACTO Professional membership once qualified, the course you complete needs to meet ACTO's eligibility criteria stated above.


ACTO recommends that all its members should have specific training before working online professionally. We list training online training providers above which offer this training. In addition some university counsellor training courses include modules which introduce working online. However, in line with BACP, ACTO does not believe that online work is suitable for the newly trained psychological therapist and have listed training courses which are only open to trained and experienced therapists.
