Why choose CBT?

CBT is a short term Psychotherapy that accords with common sense and appeals to people who are logical minded. It focuses on the here and now and avoids dwelling on the past. It helps people change their negative feelings and low motivation. They become more optimistic and feel uplifted and hopeful. It makes them have a curious “test-it- out” approach to life rather than jumping to negative or premature conclusions about themselves or other people. It is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) as the gold standard psychological treatment for depression and anxiety. You can attract NHS and EAP referrals by being skilled in CBT. Done sensitively, it is as satisfying for the client as for the therapist. It can also make a positive difference to your relationships!

This course is jam packed with over 35 handouts to aid you from start to finish with this popular, sought out modality, it really is the Ultimate Toolkit!
