Online Counselling and Psychotherapy courses

Develop your psychotherapy and mental health skills while you’re working, with this range of innovative online courses in counselling and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Ranging from introductory level to degree, they are the perfect gateway to our campus-based, accredited masters degrees.

You may be working in psychotherapy already or in a profession where skills in CBT or counselling would be useful, such as a nurse, teacher, pastor, police officer, community worker, or any role which has contact with vulnerable or distressed people. 

If you thought that counselling and CBT couldn’t be studied online, think again. We’ve carefully designed these programmes to include interactive teaching methods such as virtual classrooms and online discussion forums, so you can discuss and debate topics with your fellow students just as much as if you were on-campus together.

The most memorable moment was realising that the knowledge I had gained was having a really positive impact on the children I work with. I am able to do my job better.
