European Counsellor Training Organisation

The European Association for Counselling welcomes the opportunity of working with any Counselling/Psychotherapy Training Organisation throughout Europe. The ultimate aim of this partnership is to help promote the profession of counselling by training counsellors to a European agreed level reflected by the award of the European Certificate of Counsellor Accreditation (ECCac).

The European Association for Counselling invites you to take part in this quality control programme as an EAC Accredited Training Organisation. Your training organisation is then entitled to the following:

  • to call itself a European Association for Counselling Accredited Training Organisation and to use this relationship in all public/business dealings;
  • to conclude your students training and experience with the guarantee that they are entitled to qualify for the ECCac as they have qualified through a course accredited by the EAC
  • to present your institute`s programme and activities on the EAC website;

In this way your diploma in counselling will help to develop Counselling as a Profession recognised throughout Europe and a European quality standard will be created which is not only advantageous for your training organisation with regard to European competition but also supports the development of counselling internationally.

The First Step for a Training Organisation

Initially, a Counselling Training Organisation would be registered to become a General Member of the EAC. To do so, the following professional standards have been set out in the EAC Operating Regulations (2012).

General Members must abide by the EAC Code of Ethics for Good Practice in Counselling and must be concerned with the continuing professional development of counselling as defined in the Statutes and Operating Regulations of the EAC.

As a first step, if your training organisation wishes to register as a General Member Training of the EAC, complete the brief questionnaire below. Your application will be passed to the EAC PTSAC for their scrutiny and they will contact you to take your application to the next stage in the process.

Accredited Organisations are able to offer their students and members, who study a course accredited by the EAC, the opportunity to qualify for the European Certificate of Counsellor Accreditation (ECCac), which recognises the highest level of counselling and training expertise in the counselling profession.

Information to be submitted will include:-

  • evidence of ensuring that all your members meet and comply with EAC standards
  • a planned exercise to encourage your students to enrol as Student Members of the EAC It is also hoped that the scheme will encourage trainers of different traditions and orientations to exchange ideas and to draw inspiration from each other as part of continuing professional development.

The above criteria is a minimum standard and it should be the aim of all counselling and training centre members to develop courses beyond minimum standards with a view that their students will aspire to reach the standard of the European Certificate of Counsellor Accreditation (ECCac)

Is it the Training Organisation or the Course that is accredited?

It is the specific course which qualifies as Accredited rather than the Training Organisation, where an organisation runs more than one course each course where accreditation is sought must send an application for consideration.

During the first period of general membership upon request, they will receive a welcome pack which details the criteria required to send a course for accreditation. This will be issued by the Professional Training Standards and Accreditation Committee. Courses will provide a balance of theory, experience, supervision, counselling skills and commitment of professional development (CPD) by the student. Upon satisfying the criteria set out, the submitted course(s) may carry the EAC Logo stating A European Association for Counselling Accredited Training Course.
