Its main view is to raise the standards of counseling and psychotherapy that will benefit the community more so those who are at the receiving end of counseling and psychotherapy. BACP also advances education to the public on the role that can be played by counseling and psychotherapy to meet the demands of the members of the society if development and participation have been impaired by any disability is it physical, mental, or social.
