The Centre has six therapy rooms with the potential of providing seventy sessions per room per week. Our rooms are available to rent by suitably qualified therapists.
The Centre also has a training suite with two training rooms as well as additional group-work rooms which provide the accommodation for training of three groups of counselling skills trainees per week and four groups of diploma level trainees per month. We also deliver 3-4 Introductory Courses in CBT per year and 6-8 continual professional development training events per year.
Our Board of Directors and Staff are working toward delivering excellence in training and the highest quality of therapeutic service to our students and clients. We are consistently looking for additional opportunities for growth and development.
Training, qualifications & experience
- Professional Therapists
The Centre of therapy uses a number of experienced Professional Therapists (with many accredited with bodies such as BABCP, BACP, and COSCA) who specialise in many different areas, and can help with a wide range of issues from anxiety and depression to trauma, personality disorders and phobias.
Prior to a therapist becoming involved with the Centre of Therapy they are required to submit evidence of their Professional Indemnity Insurance, qualifications and accreditation status. In addition, a reference must be provided by a supervisor relevant to their model of therapy.
- Student Counsellors - Donation Only
As we are also a training centre for Psychotherapy, we offer therapy on a donation basis through our Student Counsellors. As part of the Diploma Course, Student Counsellors are required to gain significant experience through providing counselling in this way.
