Program description

Psychological Intervention (CBT) PGDip

Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) helps people to understand and manage their own thoughts and feelings in their daily lives. On our PGDip Psychological Intervention (CBT) course, you’ll learn how to effectively deliver CBT, to help patients improve their emotional and mental wellbeing. This course is open to both funded and self-funded applicants with a mental health background.

Our teaching has been designed to meet standards set by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, and your clinical work placement will give you hands-on experience, to put theory into practice. Our teaching is underpinned by the following core NHS values:

  • Commitment to quality of care
  • Compassion
  • Everyone counts
  • Improving people’s lives
  • Respect and dignity for all
  • Working together for patients.

On successful completion of this course, you’ll meet the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies’ (BABCP) minimum training standards for the practice of CBT, meaning you’re eligible to apply for accreditation and work as a High Intensity CBT Practitioner.

Admission requirements

A minimum of a 2:2 in a relevant UK honours degree.

You must have a minimum of two years post-qualification mental health experience and a relevant Core Professional Training in applied psychology, psychiatry, nursing, counselling, psychotherapy, occupational therapy or social work, or relevant clinical experience and training demonstrated by a successful KSA portfolio to apply.

All offers will be made subject to receiving evidence of health screening and DBS checks provided by your employer.

English language requirements
