Back at Uni for a PGCert in evidence-based therapies!

That is right! I am very happy to have started a Postgraduate Course at the University of Exeter on Psychological Evidence-based therapies for working with children, young people and families!

This one year long Postgraduate Course has a particular emphasis on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) for supporting children and young people with mild to moderate mental health presentations, such as depression and anxiety.

This is a clinical course and for successful completion I will have to undertake 200 hours of clinical work drawing on CBT. What I am extremely looking forward to receiving is 3 hrs of clinical supervision a week during which there will be an opportunity to discuss in great depth my clinical work, challenges and positive ways forward. It is expected that a great deal of the clinical sessions are video recorded which will be another great opportunity for learning and seeking feedback in supervision!

Enjoy learning!
