The Modern World of Counselling including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

Counselling and CBT were once the exclusive domain of the professional therapist, but no longer. New insights into human behaviour have helped remove the subject's mystique, making the activity more client-focused and therefore more approachable as a topic of training. With the courses, techniques and support of the Institute's tutors, counselling skills or CBT skills can be acquired by anyone ready and willing to learn.
