The Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Training provides specialist learning to aspiring counsellors and psychotherapists from a range of backgrounds and levels of experience. Our exceptional courses and experienced personal tutors enable our students to excel, and gain the vital counselling skills and qualifications they need to succeed.
We offer a range of courses, along with our partner colleges, designed to help students gain the relevant knowledge and experience needed to help others. In addition, the Advanced Specialist Diplomas (Levels 5 and 6 equivalent) and CPD courses offered are the perfect next step for the already qualified counsellor.
Our courses are delivered via multiple study options1 to suit learners, whatever their personal circumstances.
Through distance learning, we offer interactive online courses and paper-based courses, so our students can progress through their studies at a time and place that suits them.
CCPT has linked up with Heartwood Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Training, which offer attendance-based training in Devon and central London.
Our friendly, experienced tutors hold advanced counselling and psychotherapy qualifications and are dedicated to giving students the support and encouragement they need – and personally mark students’ assignments.
Students can contact their personal tutor throughout the course by phone, video chat, email or online messaging, for helpful advice or to get any questions answered.
