Therapy (CFT) 

Diploma in Compassion Focused Therapy
Start Date: 5th September 2022

This ten-month course has been developed to meet the growing interest, research, and practice of CFT. We are uniquely privileged to have developed this course with Professor Paul Gilbert OBE, the founder of Compassion Focused Therapy and founder and President of The Compassionate Mind Foundation. Paul is an internationally renowned clinical psychologist, and leading researcher and practitioner in the area of compassion. He has been actively involved in research and treatment for people facing a wide range of life difficulties, working in both clinical and non-clinical settings, for over 45 years. During this time, he has also provided training for therapists in many countries worldwide.

This course offers a unique opportunity to be part of a growing international community of people who are working with CFT to help those experiencing problems with shame-based and self-critical presentations. The course is designed to facilitate your learning and experience by creating a balance of theory and practice elements. This balance ensures that your learning is meaningful to your everyday practice, and we hope to provide a supportive learning environment. The course team are looking forward to you joining us in a collaborative, learning approach that involves working with fellow participants and the course team in the spirit of curiosity, shared discovery, and critical inquiry.
