Course Structure

This is the over-arching 24-month module of the Diploma in Contemporary Psychotherapy that spans your transition from trainee to professional Psychotherapist.
This is a module that works at levels of spirit and identity by opening up your accumulated training to its practical interface with the world that you live in.

What You Will Learn

During the Clinical Practice and Comparative Psychotherapy course, you will enjoy engrossing study that draws parallels and contrasts between different models of psychotherapy, consolidating your appreciation of these in a way that enhances your clinical application and flexibility. You will also take self-selected steps towards joining the wider environment of professional
psychotherapy, identifying from a range of options your best actions towards professional practice - or development and recognition of your existing practice.
These may range from voluntary placement, private practice to creating a new psychotherapeutic service, depending on where you are and where you want to get to.

A fully comprehensive manual, including guidelines, required paperwork, networking ideas, success stories and personal development practices (for those inevitable challenges), will guide you through the processes
