Why choose this course

Our PGCert Advanced Practice in Psychological Wellbeing course will introduce you to how clients with common mental health problems are engaged with and assessed in a clinical setting. We’ll give you the skills to add value and make a real difference to patients' lives using evidence-based talking therapies.

Our teaching has been designed to match the British Psychological Society’s (BPS) National Curriculum for the Education of Psychological Wellbeing Practitioners, and our clinical placements will give you hands-on experience, to put theory into practice. These are underpinned by the following core NHS values:

  • Commitment to quality of care
  • Compassion
  • Everyone counts
  • Improving people’s lives
  • Respect and dignity for all
  • Working together for patients.

What you will study

You’ll learn how to effectively treat patients presenting with common mental health difficulties using a range of low intensity cognitive behavioural-based interventions. You’ll develop your competencies as a reflective practitioner who’s able to critically engage with literature.

You’ll gain an appreciation for diversity, inclusion and multi-culturalism, to effectively operate in an inclusive value driven service, that promotes recovery, and recognises and respects diversity. We’ll prepare you for clinical settings by introducing you to the personal impact of working with clients in distress and the associated ethnical concerns.
