Accredited Member

Accredited membership acknowledges that practitioners have now achieved an appropriate level of qualification. This level of membership of NAPCP recognises each member’s standard of professional training and competence to develop a professional service to members of the public. Accreditation also assures the client that the practitioner will work within an agreed ethical framework and code of practice.

Supervision Requirements for Accreditation:


During training: ratio of 5:1

For trained, pre-accredited counsellors: ratio of 10:1

For accredited counsellors: ratio of 20:1

For accredited counsellors with 5 or more years of experience: 30:1

Group Supervision

If there are, for example, four members in the group with a qualified supervisor for a two hour session, that counts as two hours of supervision for each counsellor present.

1. Pre-accredited counsellors:  Group supervision may account for up to 25% of the total amount of supervision required for accreditation;
2. Accredited counsellors:  Group supervision may account for up to 50% of the total amount of supervision required;
3. Accredited for more than 5 years:  Group supervision may account for up to 75% of the total amount of supervision required.
