Deferred Registrants

This category of registration includes those qualified psychoanalytic or psychodynamic psychotherapists who are not currently registered for independent clinical practice by virtue of the fact that their work is not regulated by the BPC, but who are currently of good standing and would be eligible to be fully registered if they met the required standard of Continuing Professional Development. Deferred Registrants are bound by the BPC’s Code of Ethics, and remain subject to the BPC’s Complaints Procedure.

The Code of Ethics, which applies to all Member Institutions, requires that clinical practice must be undertaken in a regulated setting such as the NHS or under overseas registration.
