Course programme

Course overview

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) has now become widely recognised as the treatment of choice for an increasing range of mental health problems.

Small group case supervision is provided by British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) accredited therapists. In addition, you are advised to have a clinical mentor, or supervisor, within your own practice area to provide additional 'local' support.

It is important that you ensure access to appropriate clients before the course commences. Clients with anxiety disorders or mild-moderate depression, in Day/Out patient, or primary care settings are most appropriate in year one, as they are more likely to engage and improve fairly quickly. More complex, longer- term cases are only suitable for subsequent years. You are strongly encouraged to follow this advice.
