Benefits of accreditation

Becoming an accredited member of COSRT  is a valuable way of showing that your skills are recognised by the national organisation which regulates sex and relationship therapists.

Accredited membership gives you a title that you can advertise to your clients.  It shows that you have met rigorous professional standards in supervision, minimum practice hours, continuity of practice, continuing professional development (CPD) and insurance.  Your status as an accredited member will be clearly shown in our Directory of Therapists.

Accredited status is reviewed on an annual basis.

You can apply to be an accredited member if you are a general member of COSRT and have:

  • completed a two-year COSRT approved course.
  • completed a four-year COSRT approved course.
  • completed a course in psychosexual and relationship therapy, even if not approved by COSRT

Accredited Members who meet UKCP’s further requirements may be eligible for UKCP registration.

Accredited Members of COSRT who have undertaken supervision training, and who meet the standards required, may apply for Accreditation as a Supervisor.

There is more information about accredited status and how to apply in our documents library .
