BACP service accreditation
Lewis Psychology CIC is the only counselling and psychotherapy service in Wolverhampton to gain service accreditation status with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). BACP Service Accreditation demands the highest standards of practice in the counselling and psychotherapy profession and is considered by many to be the highest honour in the field.
The BACP Service Accreditation helps the public and practitioners identify services providing a high standard of counselling and psychotherapy. It sets the standard to which all counselling and psychotherapy services can aspire to and demonstrates a commitment to excellence.
All BACP accredited services demonstrate a high quality of service delivery, meeting benchmark standards that are maintained by annual assessment. In addition accredited services are bound by the Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions which was formally adopted on 1 July 2016.

- Operation (policy, aims and objectives, publicity, staffing, equal opportunities, evaluation and feedback)
- Management and administration (service structure, community liaison, health and safety, administration and management)
