Summary

Overview

Do you have a background in counselling or psychology? Would you like to learn how to help people challenge negative thinking so they can approach situations more positively?

Cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) helps people focus on current issues so they can find practical solutions that help them feel better now. A cognitive behavioural therapist helps people change how they feel and act so they can deal with issues such as anxiety, stress, depression and phobias.

On this Cognitive Behavioural Therapy DipHE, you'll learn the practical knowledge and interpersonal skills you need to pursue a career as a cognitive behavioural therapist.

In year 1, you'll develop foundational counselling skills and explore all the counselling approaches available to practitioners, including gestalt and humanistic counselling.

In your second year, you'll focus on developing the practical skills you need as a cognitive behavioural therapist. This includes putting what you learn into practice by conducting 100 hours of supervised therapy. You'll also develop skills you need to work with different types of clients and learn about mental health issues.

After the course, you could top up your diploma to a Bachelor's degree. You could also work as a cognitive behavioural therapist in areas such as education, the police service, the prison service and the voluntary sector.

What you'll experience

On this course you'll:

  • Learn from experienced, industry-trained staff who've worked in organisations or run their own private practices
  • Study modules that give you a strong foundation for your studies and future career, covering topics including counselling skills, ethics, counselling theory and professional skills and development
  • Focus on developing specialist cognitive behavioural therapy skills and knowledge in year 2
  • Apply your knowledge and skills with at least 100 hours of supervised counselling on a placement in the community
  • Build a foundation to help work towards a further professional accreditation with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) following completion of the course
  • Learn research skills, which you can apply in your career and in degree-level study after the course.

Careers and opportunities

CBT is a tool for helping people deal with difficulties including anxiety, depression, stress, phobias, eating disorders and obsessions.

Increased awareness in society about mental health and events such as the coronavirus pandemic have increased the demand for counselling and therapy services. As a cognitive behavioural therapist, you can have a significant positive impact on people's health and wellbeing, and help take the pressure off other health services such as GPs and hospitals.

Public, private and charity sector settings you could work in after the course include:

  • Education
  • Alcohol and drug services
  • Eating disorder services
  • Mental health services
  • GPs
  • Police and prison services

You could also top-up your diploma to a Bachelor's degree on our BSc (Hons) Cognitive Behavioural Therapy top-up course.

When you complete the course successfully, you can sit the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Certificate of Proficiency to become a registered member of the BACP.
