Self-funding CBT course - placements

Post by GreenOlive » Tue Jun 25, 2019 2:28 pm

Does anyone have any tips about getting a placement for a self-funded HI/CBT therapy course (place on course secured)? How many days/week did you work alongside the course to get the necessary clinical hours? I gather that most placements are unpaid and that 2 days/week plus supervision should be sufficient to meet the requirements but I’d love to hear from people who have done the course!

I also understand that contacting local services seems the suggested way to secure a placement. Just in case I’m not aware of other key online sites etc., are there any other resources for private CBT trainees that were helpful other than the actual course and peers?

Thanks for any advice!
