Cognitive Behavioural Therapy

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, also known as CBT, is a form of talking therapy which helps you identify and understand your patterns of thought and to help you realise how you can alter these patterns in order to change how you feel. This is done by focusing on how you think about the things happening in your life and how those thoughts affect your behaviour.

This CBT course is designed to train students who are new to the field as well as existing professional therapists or coaches who wish to add Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) methods to part of their practice.

Our cognitive behavioural therapy training course is designed to enable the graduate to meet the National Occupational Standards for Counselling, relevant to counselling work within the context of CBT by including comprehensive core counselling modules.

How does the course work?

Time is precious and our CBT online course is built with that in mind. Students can fit their learning around other commitments such as work or family life. You will be responsible for your study schedule and the motivation to successfully achieve this qualification.

It is also recommended that you spend 1-2 hours of your study time to complete the question paper which will need to be completed and sent to your tutor after the end of each lesson.
