Individual Portfolio Route to Membership
The Individual Portfolio Route is open to any therapist or coach with formal attendance training in their area but not with a school accredited by us. This route is also open to practitioners who originally qualified by home study and have had at least 2 years practice experience in their field.
If you have been or still are a member of a different professional body that we are sure of their standards you may not need to follow this procedure. Email us with your details and we will let you know what to do.
There are two portfolio options you can follow to meet ACCPH requirements.
Submission of a written portfolio
This will included:
- submitting four ‘Vignette’ case studies for assessment
- providing a recorded session with a real client
- a statement of personal philosophy
- a supervision report , if applicable
- completing a question and answer exam
Support is provided to help you prepare your portfolio.
