This Program is not to be used as ‘Therapy’ as previously mentioned, if you are a Therapist, you may already or be working towards becoming a BACP-accredited Therapist.
However, this course is not registered with BACP and this course does not have to be BACP-accredited.
The question of who can legally call themselves a Therapist, as with the term “counsellor”, anyone from a correspondence course enthusiast to a psychiatrist can call themselves a psychotherapist, so if they’re not a registered psychiatrist or psychologist, look for qualifications.
Anyone may call themselves a therapist, counsellor, practitioner, or clinician and provide mental health services under that title. Therapists, counsellors, practitioners, and clinicians do not need to demonstrate education, training, supervised practice, or competency to use these titles. However, they can not say that they are licensed or practicing.
It is incumbent upon each individual to ascertain the Facilitators qualifications, registrations and insurances.
People are receiving Life Coaching and flourishing, Lived Experience specialists are providing services and flourishing! It is up to the participants to trust and value what the Facilitator can offer, regardless of whether they have obtained a PHD or completed a course.
