Philosophical CBT Counselling
CBT is recognised as one of the leading, evidence based talking therapies or counselling schools. There are many types of CBT counselling models. Pioneered by Albert Ellis in the 1950’s, Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy is one of the main schools of Cognitive Behaviour Therapy. It is philosophical, evidence based and supported by clinical research. Unlike some forms of CBT, which require practitioners to have a wide knowledge of specialist protocols, REBT looks at the person as a whole rather than as a symptom and teaches a model that can be successfully applied to a wide range of different emotional issues. It offers a therapeutic structure which helps the client to achieve long lasting emotional and behavioural change, a universal model they can continue to apply to all areas of their lives which they may find challenging.

“The course more than met my expectations. It was bold, it was life changing and that has not been an exaggeration – now I want to help change others’ lives. I also enjoyed the supportive unconditional acceptance of lecturers and colleagues”. Drew
