You have excellent supervision and the University employs very experienced therapists. If you start with the Certificate, it really gives you a good background and helps you to progress.

My time in Psychology taught me how to think in a scientific way, how to get to the root of a problem, how to conduct research and how to interpret results in a meaningful way.

Southampton is known for providing high quality training in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and equipping students to be highly reflective scientist practitioners. It is also known as one of the best training providers in CBT. Studying here has not only reinforced my passion to be a Cognitive Behavioural Therapist; it has also highlighted to me how to use my knowledge as a therapist to make positive changes to my own life.
