Study type Taught


Are you interested in the practice and theory of behaviour therapy? The University of Bolton's MSc/PgDip Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapies degrees offer training preparing you for Provisional Accreditation as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist (CBP) or for further study. The course is taught by practitioners who are accredited therapists in their own right.

It's estimated that 1 in 4 people in the UK will experience a mental health problem each year (1). 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 postgraduate Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapies (CBP) courses prepare you for practice in this in-demand profession.

As a graduate of this course, you'll be eligible to apply for Level 2 Provisional Accreditation as a Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapist with the British Association of Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapists (BABCP). During your studies, we'll guide you to develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes that underpin CBP practice. You'll explore the underlying principles and have opportunities to develop skills in the assessment of clients and the analysis of their presenting difficulties. You'll be encouraged to develop a detailed knowledge of CBP techniques, as well as of models of anxiety disorders and depression, and their application to clinical casework.

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.
