Course content


  • An opportunity to study new developments in CBT
  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) has a crucial role to play in health and social care provision today
  • Delivered by a highly qualified team of psychotherapy and counselling staff from a variety of professional backgrounds
  • Part-time study option
  • International students can apply


You will gain an insight into how to use CBT creatively and collaboratively with clients and how to assess, formulate, provide interventions and evaluate your work with clients. This course focuses on interventions with clients who have anxiety and depression right through to people with addictions, personality disorder and schizophrenia as well as other complex needs. There are opportunities to study new developments in CBT, related to mindfulness and compassion focused therapy.

This course runs part-time for half a day per week over three years, or full-time for two half days per week. Optional modules may be delivered in a series of block sessions.        

Depending on your level of experience and professional interests you can choose to study a variety of modules.     


Learning is delivered via blended learning methods including seminars and master classes, critical analysis of case studies, relevant literature and research and reflection on practical applications. Use of video/audio, role play and skills assessment are essential to this course in years one and two to ensure competency of the student in practising CBT. The use of Blackboard as a learning resource is also an important element in all of the modules on the course. It is anticipated that a generous part of this work will be focused on enhancing self-awareness and using CBT tools and techniques on the self using self-help texts and interactive activities. It is anticipated that if the students can use some CBT tools on themselves that this increases self-awareness of their own interpersonal issues and also assists in practicing methods on themselves prior to using these with clients.


  • Tutor and peer practical in-class assessment
  • Case studies
  • Reflective assignments and portfolios of learning


This Masters has been designed to meet the growing need for people to have the skill set to work with clients with complex needs or mild to moderate mental health issues.

Many of our students already have jobs, but inform us that this course enhances their level of employment, or offers a new career pathway.


This course has been created after request from the North West Strategic Health Authority. Some students will be able to use the Service Level Agreement to fund these modules. Other students will self-fund or request funding from their employer.
