Hi,

I was wondering if anyone has done a short course on CBT or counselling? I was thinking about doing one that takes up to a few months to complete. It seems like they are a couple of hundred pounds.

I would really like to learn more and get a qualification without having to do anything major like University. I am a mental health support worker so something like this will be really benficial for me at work and personal life. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks

I trained to be a general counsellor.
It's not cheap and is very time-consuming. Any decent course will expect you to be volunteering/working alongside the course (in a counselling role) to earn 100 hours of "client hours" which will be part of your assessment, you'd also be expected to attend your own self-funded supervision for your own mental health and for "personal development" which again, is usually assessed.
CBT is a specific branch of counselling too (there's lots of different styles).

Have a look on the BACP or BPS website - these institutions set the guidelines in which you'd work as a counseller and will only 'accredit' you if you've qualified at one of their "accredited courses".

I've seen a few college courses that offer counselling, but you'd have to start at Level 1/2, then do level 3, and level 4 (degree equivalent) before you'd be able to practice. If you just want to learn basic counselling skills, a level 1/2 course is advisory but they may teach you person-centered approach rather than CBT.
