Discover How to Use CBT to Improve Positive Thinking - Centre-based

Day of week:
Ashford Gateway , Ashford
Level 1
10:00 - 15:00
1 week

Although advertised as centre-based, this course may change to online if COVID restrictions predict. We suggest enrolling anyway and we will keep you informed and will support a change of mind if the new format does not suit you.

Thoughts feelings and behaviours are all linked. By making links between what we do, think and feel, CBT can help us make changes in the way we think ("Cognitive") and the way we act ("Behaviour)".

This course will help you understand how CBT works and how it can be used as a tool in your Counselling practice.

By the end of the course you will be able to:

- Understand what CBT is
- Understand how and when it can be used in your Therapy/Counselling Practice

The course in Ashford is delivered through tutor presentations and small group discussions on reflective activities and is ideal for practising Counsellors and therapists and student Counsellors or those working to support clients of a charity.

If your course is held at Ashford Gateway in the evening, please note the following:- The main door to the building closes at 6pm Mon-Wed and 8pm on Thurs. The building can only be accessed via the side door which is situated to the left of the main entrance at the corner of the building. There is an entry system via a buzzer.
Please note that there are no refreshments available at The Gateway on a Saturday. You may wish to take your own refreshments and a packed lunch
