We are pleased to introduce a bespoke two-year part-time Post Qualifying diploma for qualified therapists to deepen their skills and knowledge in children and young people and meet the stringent requirements to register as a child psychotherapeutic counsellor or child psychotherapist.

This is in response to increasing demand for specialised CYP training and formal qualifications working with CYP.  All training will be within an integrative transactional analysis framework working to UKCP and BACP standards and NCS Competency Framework for Working with Children and Young People.
