Course content

This exciting programme in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy (CBP) will focus on the evidence based treatment of depression and anxiety disorders.

The central aim of the course is to provide students with a clear understanding of cognitive-behavioural concepts, models, and methods. It is anticipated that those completing the programme will be able to use what they have learned in a safe and effective way in order to enhance the efficacy of their psychotherapeutic interventions.

The course is fully accredited by the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) as an IAPT level 2 course.

Students need a core profession relating to mental health or can go through the KSA route and provide a portfolio as outlined on the BABCP website. KSA requirements must be met if candidates do not have a core profession recognised by the BABCP.

Students will be required to attend clinical supervision and teaching sessions one day a week (day to be confirmed), so will need to organise this with current employers.
