To ensure the success of your application, you must satisfy the standards established by IAHIP, as delineated in our Bye-Law 11 (Criteria for Accreditation of Humanistic and Integrative Psychotherapists).


Step 1

Before you apply, take a moment to go through the criteria set by IAHIP – it's crucial.

Knowing these criteria upfront is key for you. It helps you figure out if you're a good fit for IAHIP Accreditation and lets you fine-tune your application to match exactly what we are looking for.

Understanding these criteria in advance not only boosts your chances of a successful application but also shows IAHIP that you're serious about meeting our standards.

Don't skip this step – it's your roadmap to a strong application.

Step 2

Need to find a Supervisor?

Search for an IAHIP Accredited Supervisor

Non-IAHIP Supervisors are accepted, but must meet the criteria as outlined in Bye-Law 11 [Section 7]


Once your application is submitted online, the team will line everything up for your supervisor or supervisors to review and complete all relevant Supervisor Forms.

Your supervisor will log into the applications portal and complete an 'Action Task' to review and complete the Supervisor Report. The team can assist your supervisor in navigating the portal. 

Once your Supervisor has completed the report and clicked the Submit button at the end, you will have an opportunity to review your supervisor report before it goes to the Accreditation Committee for review.

As IAHIP is a volunteer based organisation, the application process can take up to 6 months, however the current average is 3 months. 

Applications from Non-Recognised Training Courses can take longer to process due to the additional checks required with these applications. 


  • Please also see guidance notes regarding didactic supervision during training. (7.1.2 of Bye-Law 11)
  • All relevant sections completed and, where necessary, supporting evidence supplied.
  • All ratios stated – when totals are requested in the form, they must be completed
  • Please see: to view the next Accreditation Committee meeting date. Final submissions (with Supervisor Reports) must be received 14 days before the committee meeting date. 
  • When we receive your application, you will get confirmation by return. After which, processing of the application may take three to six months to complete.
