Membership Criteria

Membership is divided into categories within each professional stream (Modality). All streams are equivalent – so Coaching Psychology is not more important than the Coaching and the Consulting Stream. All are useful, all are important – depending on practitioner orientation, training and purpose for working with clients. What is important from the ABCCCP perspective is that each stream has the best possible practitioners serving the buyers of the services in that stream.

What it means to be a member

The membership of the ABCCCP means you have undergone scrutiny with regard to your professional status as a consultant, coaching psychologist or coach. It’s not just about paying membership and belonging to a society- it’s a badge of quality that speaks to your skills, knowledge, results as well as ethics since the accreditation process takes all of these into account.
