Part Time - Weekend Psychotherapy Training

Next entry for the smcp psychotherapy training Programme 2017-18 is September 2017. Applications accepted from 1st February 2017

smcp is an organisational member of the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP)

smcp is also a UKATA Registered Training Establishment.


Once registered on the smcp training programme you will be entitled to apply for BACP student membership.

Once the smcp Certificate award is achieved students will be entitled to apply for individual membership with BACP.

You can then take the BACP online test (over 95% of people pass first time) in order to achieve BACP registration.

Once you have achieved the smcp Diploma you will be eligible to apply for fully accredited membership with BACP.


smcp was established in 1991 and has been delivering fully accredited psychotherapy / counselling training since 1997. All training, once the criteria have been met, can lead to qualified membership with BACP.

The programme is part-time and takes place at weekends. For 2017-18 (Group A - all weekends. Group B includes 12 weekend days and 3 Fridays - 12 midday to 8 pm) and is delivered within a very flexible structure: qualified status and professional membership can be achieved in ways that suit individual circumstances.

Entry is at any time of the year depending on place availability and training can be achieved alongside full time employment. Most people begin the main training programme in September.

Missed training days can be made up within the same training year and this flexibility of approach has received an 'excellent' by 100% of students in their end of year feedback for the last eight years.

Who is the psychotherapy training programme for?


Transactional Analysis (TA) is a theory of personality and interpersonal behaviour, and a method of psychotherapy. The primary modality is TA but several other modalities are also included in the 4 year syllabus. You might want to attend for your own learning, development, understanding of your self, your relationships or for enjoyment. You only sign up for one year at a time.

If you are seeking professional membership as a psychotherapist or counsellor you can achieve this by meeting all the criteria throughout the 3 or 4 year part- time training - meeting all the criteria for either award can take longer if you want.

You may want to consider training if you are:

Interested in Psychotherapy, Counselling, personal development, professional development, or improving your communication skills and relationships both professionally and personally.

OR - would like to enhance your understanding and skills in working with people.

OR - are practising as a counsellor and want to develop your effectiveness with a wider range of clients and problems.

OR - are somebody who would like to explore a new career as a psychotherapist or counsellor.

OR - would like to personally develop your understanding of yourself with like minded people.

What's on offer?

smcp offers:

Two day Introductory courses: Understanding Human Personality - available throughout the year.

Part time, flexible, weekend, training in psychotherapy and counselling. There are two main parallel training groups.

Adult learners entering the main training programme at smcp do not do so with the same experience - some people have read a lot
and some haven't, some have attended their own psychotherapy or counselling and some haven't and some have worked in professions that are related to the delivery of counselling or psychotherapy and some people have done none of these.

smcp provides an approach and structure that recognises individual experience and each person's uniqueness. 100% of students, in their end of year feedback, rate the training structure as excellent and this has been the case for every training year since 2008.

The main intake is in September but you may join one of the main training groups at any point during the year - dependent on place availability.

Accreditation and Time frame

Participation in the three or four year, part-time core training programme is flexible - hours do not need to be accumulated within consecutive years. You may take breaks from your training and return into the next year at the end of your break.


The Certificate award takes a minimum of 3 years part-time study but can take longer - you can determine the pace at which you achieve the criteria (within certain limits).


The Diploma award takes a minimum of 4 years part time study but can take longer - you can determine the pace at which you achieve the criteria (within certain limits).

As well as the core delivery of theory and practice hours - awards contain a placement and supervised practice element (part of BACP criteria), your own personal therapy and on-going assessments. Students are responsible for finding their own placement and can begin when they have met the 'Fitness to Practice' criteria - most people achieve this about half way through their second year but it is up to the individual student.
