Please declare activity from 1st January 2023 - 31st December 2023

CPD Activity

You are no longer required to declare your CPD hours at renewal but we recommend you keep a note of the clinical and general CPD activity you complete between 01 January and 31 December each year in case you are selected for audit. If you’d like a sample template for recording your CPD, you can download one here.

You can find the CPD requirements for each registration category listed here. Please note that from 2022, Registrants in the NHS only category are required to complete the same number of CPD hours as Full Registrants.

You will need to declare that you have undertaken the required CPD hours and will continue to do so.

Explain your situation

If you have been unable to complete the required CPD hours for the previous year, or anticipate circumstances where you may be unable to meet them for the coming year, you should also tick ‘I need to explain my situation‘. A textbox will appear below – please detail why you were unable to meet your CPD requirements in the box. This information will be sent to the Professional Standards Committee for approval.

Newly registered

If you registered with the BPC for the first time during 2023, your CPD requirement will be calculated on a pro-rata basis, from when you joined. To calculate your pro-rata hours, you will need to divide both the required clinical and required general hours by 12, then multiply them by the number of months you were registered in that calendar year.

Example: for full Registrants, the CPD requirement from 1 Jan – 31 Dec is 15 hours clinical CPD and 15 hours general CPD. If you joined the BPC on 1 July as a Full Registrant, the pro-rata requirement would be 7.5 hours clinical CPD and 7.5 hours general CPD. Each month of membership requires pro-rated 1.25 hours of CPD if you are a Full Registrant.

In order to complete your renewal, you must make the declaration that you are fit to practise. If you have any concerns or questions about this, you will need to contact us. To agree, click on the ‘I confirm that I have read and understood the declaration above‘ button at the bottom of the page.

You will need a countersignatory for your registration. Your countersignatory must have heard your work and can agree they do not know any reason why you cannot continue to be registered. They do not have to be your regular supervisor but must have heard enough about your work from you to be able to make that declaration. Your countersignatory cannot be your partner, close friend or relative.

Normally, we expect your countersignatory to be psychoanalytically qualified for at least five years and be a current BPC Registrant from the psychoanalytic or Jungian analytic part of the register. In exceptional circumstances, we will accept countersignatories registered with other PSA-accredited registers such as UKCP, ACP and BACP. BACP registrants must be BACP accredited to act as a countersignatory. In other exceptional circumstances, we might accept a BPC Registrant not from the psychoanalytic/Jungian analytic part of the register but you will need to contact us to get this approved.

If your countersignatory does not meet any of the above criteria, you will need to send us an email after you have submitted your renewal form to explain why. If your countersignatory does not meet the above criteria, and has not changed, but was approved last year by the Chair of the Professional Standards Committee, you do not need to contact us again.

Our requirements for countersignatories are currently under review as we appreciate they might not be achievable in all circumstances. This review is likely to take some time, and we will notify Registrants of any changes to our requirements as soon as we can.

If you are renewing in the Deferred category, we recommend still having a countersignatory.

My Countersignatory is

If we hold your countersignatory, these details will already be filled in. Please check this is still correct, and update if necessary.

My countersignatory is registered with

The regulatory body of your countersignatory should automatically appear ticked if we already have this information. However, you can add/edit this information – it is possible to select more than one.

My Countersignatory’s registration number is

If you have already provided this, your countersignatory’s registration number should appear in the field. If not, please enter their registration number here.

If you are looking for your the registration number of a BPC Registrant, head to our Find a Therapist page. Type their name in the search box and click on their profile. Registration numbers are listed above the name of the Registrant.

Click to confirm you have spoken with your countersignatory and they are happy for their details to be included in this form and contacted by the BPC, if required.


If you have been asked to countersign for a Registrant, you are not required to make any declarations. However, we may contact you to confirm your countersignature in the future.
