It’s estimated that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year*. The problem-focused, action-oriented approach used by cognitive behavioural psychotherapists to help people develop personal coping strategies is proving a popular and effective method of treating several mental health conditions. Our MSc Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapies (CBP) course prepares you for practice in this in-demand profession. Additionally, our experienced British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP) accredited staff will support you to complete a dissertation based on independent research, preparing you for higher-level study and enhancing your career prospects.
This course is ideal if you wish to practice using a cognitive behavioural approach in settings that include the helping or health professions, private practice or management roles where working with people is the prime focus. Training in research methods and design will also prepare you to keep abreast of evolving ideas in the field and open doors to doctoral level studies.
This course offers you the opportunity to gain accreditation as a therapist from the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP). It has Level 2 Accreditation which means that it meets the training requirements for practitioner accreditation. The course is also designed to cover the therapeutic competences for cognitive behavioural psychotherapists outlined by the Department of Health.
On successful completion of the course you’ll have an assessed portfolio of evidence designed to meet the BABCP criteria for accreditation.
The course is fully modular and therefore flexible. If your work or personal circumstances require you to take a break, we can extend your period of study by agreement.
A strong basis of theoretical psychology underpins the course. This helps to ensure your practice-related learning is not separated from its primary academic base, and supports your understanding of where CBP techniques come from, and how they might develop in future.
This course is designed to enhance practice and facilitate employment and career progression in psychology or therapy, research and teaching, the helping and health professions, social work, education, private practice and management roles where working with people is the prime focus.
During your studies, we’ll support you to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that underpin cognitive behavioural psychotherapies practice. As a graduate, you’ll understand the principles of cognitive behavioural psychotherapies, and possess skills in the assessment of clients and formulation of their presenting difficulties.
Studying this course will also support the development of your personal and transferable skills such as critical analysis, self-reflection, observation and questioning skills, communication skills and the ability to work independently.
