This is our entry level CBT qualification which is intended for people already in a guidance role e.g. counsellors, teachers, ministers/priests, CPNs, GPs, social workers, allied health professionals and other support workers in various fields.

Our CertCBI course provides introductory training in dealing a wide range of issues, including low mood and depression; stress, worry and anxiety; self-esteem, self-worth and self-acceptance.
