I have a Psychology degree, am I eligible for the Diploma course?

The minimum requirement for entry to the Diploma in CBT/REBT is formal training in basic counseling skills.  These are examined in the practical assessment on the Diploma course but are not taught on the Diploma course.  Most undergraduate psychology degrees do not teach the practical skills of counseling usually only covering the theoretical models.


I have previous CBT qualifications can I gain entry to the Advanced Diploma in CBT/REBT?

No, unless a candidate has extensive through training in the REBT model you will not be able to gain entry to the Advanced Diploma.

CBT qualiifications usually teach Cognitive Therapy (CT) by aaron Beck.  Our courses specialize in REBT by Albert Ellis.

  • Diploma in CBT/REBT
  • Advanced Diploma in CBT/REBT

Is there practical work on your courses?

 Yes, all our courses are a mixture of theory and practical skills.


Is there client work on your courses?

 Yes.  Once you have completed the Diploma course where you gain all the skills required to work with clients the Advanced Diploma requirements include a placement under clinical supervision.


Are there any extra costs over and above the course fees?

 At Diploma there are no extra costs.  On the Advanced Diplomas clinical supervision at a cost of £50 per session for a minimum of 6 sessions is required.  Therefore a further £300 cost on top of the basic fees.
