Counselling Scholarship for volunteers

28 January 2016

Belfast Cognitive Therapy Centre greatly admire voluntary workers and therefore wish to offer a 1400 scholarship to one volunteer, who works with a regd. charity or community org. helping others, to begin to train professionally on their certificate in CBT.

Belfast Cognitive Therapy Centre is the sole British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)accredited counsellor/ therapist training programme in Northern Ireland.

The certificate is an introductory 12 week course which attracts entrants who wish to train professionally one day. It also attracts those who have no formal qualifications who wish to learn about CBT and about therapy as a career. It is also aimed at enabling mental health professionals who wish to add to their existing skills and knowledge.

Trainees attend each Saturday 9-5 p.m. from September - December 2016 and will meet with other friendly and helpful peers and training staff who also strongly believe in the value of self-help, empathy and voluntary work.

If you would like more information we run seminar evenings for those who are interested in training at BCTC, the next of which is coming up soon on Thursday 31st March from 6–8:30pm and Thursday 30th June from 6–8:30pm.

You can find more information and an application form at www.belfastctcentre.com or telephone 028 9065 0060

(closing date for applications: Friday 19August 2016)
