ECPT is an independent, private training provider specialising in training psychotherapists and counsellors. The academic level of our counselling courses is Level 6 (the same as a bachelors degree), and psychotherapy is Level 7 (the same as a postgraduate degree), however, the courses are part-time and a diploma from us is not a full degree.
A Level 6 or Level 7 ECPT Diploma is sufficient to work in many NHS settings or go into private practice, and makes you eligible to seek UKCP accreditation.
We are an alternative to university for those that want to study part-time, are able to self-fund, and want to gain the practical experience that UKCP and other accrediting bodies and employers are looking for alongside the academic work.
We do not have access to funding through Student Finance
