What training and experience do I need to be able to become a member?

The minimum level face to face training we accept is a diploma. Whilst we don't require potential members to have completed any post-training therapy hours we recognise that this is very useful in helping you consolidate your learning and experience within the therapeutic relationship.

In addition we require all our professional members to have successfully completed an online training with an ACTO Online Training Provider.

Your choice of course should meet the minimum ACTO criteria for qualifying courses https://acto-org.uk/acto-minimum-criteria-for-qualifying-courses/  and the ACTO competences for working online therapeutically https://acto-org.uk/acto-recommended-competences-for-counselling-and-psychotherapy-online/.

Before signing up for a course we recommend that you check that your chosen online course meets these ACTO requirements by making enquiries with the training organisation.
