Inactive Accredited Supervisor Membership

This category is open to Accredited Supervisor Members who intend to suspend practising as a Supervisor for a period of more than six months.

Members who are suspending practice as both Counsellor / Psychotherapist and Supervisor, for a limited period, but intend to resume their practice will need to pay both inactive fees (Inactive Accredited Membership and Inactive Supervisor Membership).

Members retiring from practice as Supervisors are not required to pay inactive Supervisor fees.

A Supervisor member can be an Inactive Supervisor, for a limited period, while remaining an Active Accredited Member, but cannot be an Inactive Member and remain an Active Supervisor Member.

Inactive Supervisor membership can be granted for a maximum period of 2 years.
(In exceptional circumstances periods of more than 2 years will be granted individually by application to the Supervision Committee). 

You will be required to re-contract with your Supervisor before resuming your Supervision practice.

Inactive Supervisor Members will retain the benefits of their IACP membership and be eligible to attend the Supervisors Forum meetings.

Timeframe for statutory registration


Draft regulations to designate the professions of Counsellors and Psychotherapists and to establish a registration board will be ready for submission to the Houses of the Oireachtas for their approval during the present session, the Minister for Health, Simon Harris, has told the Dail.


The Minister recently concluded a public consultation on  his proposal to regulate counsellors generally under the Health and Social Care Professionals Act 2005.


On foot of the consultation process, He has decided to proceed with the designation of two distinct professions under the Act, that of counsellor and psychotherapist. Each will have its own register under one registration board. This decision has been communicated to the Health and Social Care Professionals Council, the relevant professional bodies and all the respondents to the public consultation process.


Subject to the approval of the Houses, the next step will be the appointment of the 13 members of the registration board, following the submission of suitable candidates for the Minister's consideration, by the Public Appointments Service. The aim is that the registration board will be in a position early in the New Year to begin the task of drafting the various bye-laws to allow it to establish its registers.
