Train in psychotherapy
The full Psychotherapy Training Programme runs at nwcp, Eglwysbach, Conwy - applications being received from January 2013 onwards. nwcp is 80 miles from smcp.
The north wales centre for psychotherapy is set in an outstanding environment with panoramic vies of the Snowdonian mountain range, an indoor, heated swimming pool, 8 acres of land and four star accommodation (if needed) on site. It is a beautiful place to train, attend professional development days, do psychotherapy or receive supervision.
Once you begin training with smcp and nwcp you will be guaranteed a place at the venue of your choice for the second/third or fourth year of your training.
The four year programme is part time (15 days per year), flexible, fully accredited and leads to the The south manchester centre for psychotherapy (UKCP) registration. UKCP is the leading body within the UK for the registration of psychotherapists.
If you prefer to become accredited with The British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) then this is also possible so long as all the criteria have been met.
Training days are a combination of weekends and weekdays. You only sign up for a year at a time (15 days over the year) and you can attend for 1 year or up to 4 years, depending upon your reasons for training. Some people attend for personal and professional development and some attend to become fully qualified psychotherapists. If you attend for personal development you do not need to meet any of the criteria.
Psychotherapy training (TA) is done in hours and you have to complete 2,000 hours before you are eligible to sit the final written and oral examinations. On average it takes between 4 and 6 years of part time training to become fully qualified. However you have to begin practising as a trainee therapist, when the criteria have been met, prior to this: usually within 2-3 years of beginning training.
It is important that you have all the information before deciding what to do. If you would like to request the full Psychotherapy Training Handbook then please do so via the contact buttons. This handbook is a pdf document with detailed explanations of the fully accredited course.

Supervision is obligatory and an important part of all clinical work. It has many functions, but serves primarily as protection for both client and practitioner. It can be educative in nature, helping the therapist to develop skills and theoretical models of understanding. It can provide mentoring, consultative and restorative functions. All are important aspects of the challenges and demands of working as a professional and ethical psychotherapist.
Carol Lucas has broad experience as a supervisor across a wide range of theoretical models and specialisms, since 1997. She currently runs several supervision groups and supervises qualified and trainee practitioners.
Carol has worked as an expert witness within the legal system and supervises the management team of several psychotherapy and counselling organisations in the statutory and voluntary sectors across the Manchester area.
Supervision can either be on an individual basis or within a group.
