About Your Course

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, also known as CBT, is a type of talking therapy that can help you manage your problems by changing the way you think and behave. It's based on the idea that your thoughts, feelings, physical sensations, and actions are all interconnected and that negative thoughts and feelings can trap you in a negative cycle.

Cognitive behavioural therapy is an important tool for managing a wide range of mental health issues, including anxiety, depression, PTSD, insomnia, and eating disorders. However, it’s also effective for treating a variety of other problems, including chronic pain, addiction, and relationship issues. It's a flexible and adaptable therapy that can be tailored to meet the individual needs of each client.

If you’re considering cognitive behavioural therapy as a career, this course acts as the perfect introduction. It will give you a detailed understanding of CBT, and the methods used, so you can ensure this is a career you want to pursue. If you’re already working as a professional therapist or coach, this course is also an ideal way for you to add CBT methods to part of your practice.

Our cognitive behavioural therapy training course is designed to address the theoretical foundations, practical application, and professional considerations of CBT. By studying this course, you will be well prepared for further training in this therapy.

How Does This 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.

Take The Next Step

Please note that this is a knowledge-based course, so it will not qualify you as a cognitive behavioural therapist. It is intended as the ideal introduction to cognitive behavioural therapy, so you can make an educated decision as to whether this career path is the right one for you.

To become a qualified cognitive behavioural therapist in the UK, you typically need to complete an undergraduate degree in a relevant field like psychology. This will enable you to complete the necessary accredited postgraduate diploma or master's degree in cognitive behavioural therapy. After completing that level of training, you would then be able to apply for accreditation with a professional body like the BABCP or BPS.

Getting Started

This online cognitive behavioural therapy knowledge-based course is delivered by learndirect, the UK’s leading online learning provider. More than 4 million learners have achieved qualifications through our online training courses.

You will study this course online via our innovative learning platform, which you will have access to 24/7. You will, therefore, have the freedom to choose your study schedule, working whenever you wish without sacrificing your commitments.
