Length:1 Year(s)


The Diploma aims to teach students to achieve the level of knowledge and clinical skills to operate effectively as psychological therapists, using evidence-based Cognitive Behaviour Therapy methods routinely in their work.

Following the success of the NHS Talking Therapies initiative in primary care mental health services, work is in progress to maintain existing NHS Talking Therapies services and to extend into other services whose users could benefit from psychological therapies. This may include a range of mental health services, addictions services, and physical health care services. For trainees to be successful, they will attend university two days per week and three days per week clinical placement, with supervision. Placements are most successful within an NHS Talking Therapies service, and funding is available only to those on placement within specified NHS Talking Therapies or NHS Talking Therapies-commissioned services.
