The University of South Wales has many years’ experience in teaching cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT). The MSc/Postgraduate Diploma is for mental health professionals looking for additional specialist training, or if you want to train as a counsellor/psychotherapist and have already completed a Postgraduate Certificate in Counselling Skills, or equivalent.

The MSc is a three year course, made up of two years training on the Postgraduate Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy which covers both the practical and theoretical aspects of learning to be a cognitive behavioural psychotherapist, plus one year completing the Masters (research and dissertation stage). On the Masters stage you will learn about research methods for studying cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and will undertake a research project of your choice and write it up in the form of a dissertation.

Cognitive Behavioural Psychotherapy is an evidence based psychological therapy that is recommended by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) as the main psychological treatment approach for a range of conditions and common mental health problems. This course aims to support the development of students into safe, competent, and effective, evidence-based Cognitive Behavioural scientist practitioners who can deliver formulation-driven therapy within evidence-based treatment protocols.
