Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is an increasingly popular form of psychological therapy. This course is designed to enable students to practice CBT. The course is structured around teaching, skills practice, experiential learning, supervision support groups, and academic assignments. The academic assignments include essays, case reports, and recordings of live sessions with clients. Students are also encouraged to discuss their own views on CBT as well as on mental health and psychological therapy in general. The core feature of the course is the facilitation of reflective practice.

Entry requirements

Enquiries and applications are welcome from privately funding individuals and organisations, provided certain criteria relating to access to appropriate clinical work and CBT supervision can be met. Applications are welcome from those able to self-fund or from those who would be able to access funding from organisations outside of the NHS. Such applicants would need to demonstrate their ability to access a placement in which the clinical components of the training would be undertaken, as well as access to clinical supervision from a BABCP accredited therapist.
