By first learning the best approaches for assessing a patient’s problem – rather than their symptoms - you can take this knowledge and use it to help those in your care achieve a healthy emotional balance.

The National Institute for Clinical Excellence recommends Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) as an effective treatment for most mental health conditions. This is due to its goal to replace a patient’s negative feelings with positive ones.

As a result, if you are genuinely serious about building a career within this field, you may want to consider adding this qualification to your arsenal, as it can make a massive difference to your comprehension, development and training on this subject.

This CBT course is comprised of 6 informative units - that over the duration of your studies - will teach you the various cognitive techniques for treating specific emotional issues, as well as: the Socratic Method, CBT delivery, physical techniques, and models/protocols for aiding those with depression, suicidal thoughts, post-traumatic stress disorders and phobias.

And this training is particularly beneficial if you aspire to someday work as a counsellor or as a therapist, as this course can lay down the foundations for building a solid knowledge on CBT and its corresponding models/protocols.

The fact that you can complete this course from the comfort of your own home, means you can easily mould your learning around your current work, family or social commitments, and do so whilst remaining in complete control of your studies.

There are no examinations and there is no need to attend any classes.

Instead, at a time, pace and location of your choosing you can easily spread your 180 hours of study (over 12 months) and achieve a healthy, stress-free, work-study balance that will ultimately enable you to walk away with a deeper appreciation of CBT and how it can help patients to deal with relationships, disorders, trauma and anxiety.

All of our courses are accessible online or by post, and come with the promise of a personal tutor whose years of industry knowledge and experience can guide your learning journey.

PLEASE NOTE: This course is approved by the ACCPH (Accredited Counsellors, Coaches, Psychotherapists and Hypnotherapists), whom students can join upon the completion of their written assessments.
