There are two direct pathways to qualifying as a psychosexual and relationship therapist.
This pathway is for applicants who are not yet qualified as a counsellor but have a relevant degree and past work experience to commence a qualification pathway in psychosexual and relationship therapy.
This route starts with our Foundation Certificate in Counselling Skills and Practice which covers general counselling skills theory and practice, before moving into our two-year, part-time specialist Diploma in Clinical Sexology and Relationship Therapy.
If you are already a BACP Registered Counsellor, UKCP Registered Psychotherapist, BPS Accredited Psychotherapist or a Psychiatrist you can directly access our two year, part time specialist Diploma in Clinical Sexology and Relationship Therapy.
Both Pathway 1 and 2 leads to Registration with the College of Sexual and Relationship Therapists.
If you are already a qualified counsellor, or equivalent, with a formal training in couples therapy, or you are a medical professional, and you want to incorporate psychosexual therapy into your practice, you can access our Psychosexual Therapy Certificate course to learn how to work with sexual themes in your couple therapy work.
This course does not lead to formal qualification as a sex therapist or registration with COSRT.
