Course summary

Studying a Postgraduate Certificate in Compassion Focused Therapy will:

  • Provide the opportunity for you to develop a critical and in-depth understanding of the theory and practice of Compassion Focused Therapy (CFT)
  • Give you the opportunity to gain integral knowledge of the assessment and formulation and interventions in CFT
  • Enhance your skills through intensive clinical supervision that examines clinical practice to ensure transfer of knowledge into the clinical setting
  • Give you the opportunity to receive expert training throughout the course

This course is for you if you’re in a mental health profession and you are trained to form and develop psychotherapeutic relationships. It may therefore be of particular interest to health care workers working within psychiatry, psychology, nursing, occupational therapy, counselling or psychotherapy.

This course is based on real world learning. Students will be practicing the skills they learn on this course within their existing clinical practice.

Careers

People who take this course are often employed as therapists within organisations such as the NHS or third sector organisations or are self-employed therapists. Developing knowledge and skills in CFT is seen as a valuable addition to their practice.
