Candidates may, in some circumstances, be considered who do not have a Masters Degree, but who have a psychotherapy award from a reputable psychotherapy institute that is approved by UKCP (United Kingdom Council for Psychotherapy), that is not formally validated as a Masters Degree, but that is deemed to be examined at Masters Level.
