About the Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Training

CCPT aim and mission

The Centre for Counselling and Psychotherapy Training specialises in providing exceptional courses and personal tutor support so our students can successfully gain vital counselling skills and NCFE CACHE qualifications. Our courses have also been awarded Online Quality Checked status by the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS).
Our students benefit from progressing through our online, interactive course content at a time and place that suits them. This enables our students to fit their studies conveniently around their existing work and family commitments.
This approach helps our students gain highly sought-after counselling skills so they, in turn, can help and support people when they need it, either as professional counsellors or in their existing careers. We are proud to train and support so many people on their journeys to becoming qualified counsellors; and we are equally delighted when our students use their new and valuable skills to complement their careers in other fields.
