CBT Diploma course feedback

The APT Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), course feedback.

APT prides itself on the feedback we receive about our courses. Below is just some of the great written feedback the APT Diploma in CBT has received.

"I have had a fabulous year of self discovery – highs and lows – achievements and disappointments. I have gown as a person and this can only reflect in to the work I do with my clients. The course has been interesting and enlightening, I have learnt so much. This was down to the people in the group and the way the course was delivered and put together."

Viv Swain, Substance Misuse Practitioner

"This Diploma course has provided me with a treasure trove of knowledge and insight, both on a personal and professional level. I have renewed faith in the field of therapy. The tutors who are also respected Clinical Psychologists prove that passion, integrity and warmth are key personal qualities to possess as therapists and have taught me much more valuable knowledge than the subject of CBT alone. The course has been colourful and inspiring and has been an enriching life experience aside from the benefits it has brought me as a professional. Thank you so much!"

Kath Kuemmerle, Substance Misuse Practitioner

"This year has been a big progress for me in terms of personally and professionally. It has given me skills that I will use not only in CBT sessions but also in all general sessions with clients. Fantastic tutors who have made the learning easy and enjoyable and also have concreted the techniques for me. A massive thank you, CBT is my focus within my career all due to this course."

Vicky Powell, Substance Misuse Practitioner

"Thank you for delivering such an interesting, useful course in such an insightful and inspirational way. Many of the topics have been a part of and touched the lives of others very close to me and it has given me the confidence on a very personal level to be competent on supporting those close to me, as well as benefitting my skills and knowledge on a professional level with my clients, in supporting them also. I value CBT and the shared insight and teaching you have equipped me with in my journey of development."

Sandra Hardy, Counsellor

CBT training doesn't come any better than this. A superb journey which will enhance my practice greatly."

"The best course I have ever done (closely followed by Moodmaster). The course was fun with clear learning points.
