Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) is widely used in the treatment of clinical problems, such as depression, anxiety, low self-esteem, resilience and anger. It aims to manage negative and unhelpful thoughts and feelings by learning how to challenge them, and through setting realistic goals.
This two day course is intended for professionals who work with clients where cognitive-behavioural interventions may be useful. By the end of the course you will be able to apply CBT techniques and principles in your workplace to help your clients address unhelpful thoughts and behaviours.
Please note that attendance on this course will not qualify you to deliver ‘CBT’. You will however be able to apply techniques and skills to support and improve your interventions with clients. Some basic counselling skills, which are necessary to apply cognitive behavioural techniques, will also form part of the course.

- Understand the concept and principles of CBT
- Identify appropriate situations to apply a CBT approach
- Apply a variety of cognitive behavioural techniques suitable for your workplace
- Demonstrate using counselling skills and cognitive behavioural interventions
- Apply techniques and approaches to break ‘vicious cycles’
