Our training courses are fully approved or accredited by the recognised professional bodies:
NCS and HS
The National Counselling Society (NCS) offer course accreditation on successful completion of the following courses: A Diploma in CBT/REBT and the Advanced Diploma in CBT/REBT and the Advanced Diploma in Integrative CBT/REBT I. And, at the discretion of the Society, is a route onto the National Counselling Society’s Accredited Register.
The National Hypnotherapy Society (HS) offer course accreditation on successful completion of the Advanced Diploma in Integrative CBT/REBT II having successfully completed the Diploma in CBT/REBT and the Advanced Diploma in CBT/REBT and the Advanced Diploma in Integrative CBT/REBT II. And, at the discretion of the Society, is a route onto the National Hypnotherapy Society’s Accredited Register.
The NCS and HS both hold registers which have been accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under its Accredited Register programme. An Accredited Register is the result of the programme set up by the Department of Health and administered by the Professional Standards Authority who are an independent body, accountable to Parliament. The Health and Social care Act 2012, as amending the Health Care Professions Act 2002, provides for the Professional Standards Authority to accredit registers of health and social care practitioners which meet the Authority’s standards. Other bodies accredited by the PSA include the UKCP and the BACP. The National Hypnotherapy Society holds the first and only current hypnotherapy register to be accredited by the Professional Standards Authority under its Accredited Registers programme.
The NHS recognises Accredited Registers such as the National Counselling Society.
Our Diploma courses are approved by AREBT. AREBT is the lead organisation for REBT in the UK. Albert Ellis was a supporter and a Fellow of AREBT. The aim of AREBT is to promote and develop the science, practice and delivery of REBT and to make this form of CBT more easily accessible to the public. Our courses fulfil most of the accreditation requirements for AREBT. Additional requirements are dependent on your APL and may include for example self study on research methodology in Psychology. Accreditation with AREBT provides an opportunity for dual accreditation by both AREBT and BABCP and listing on the CBT register.
