There are two direct pathways to qualifying as a psychosexual and relationship therapist.
If you have an eligible degree or work experience you can access our three year qualification pathway. 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 can demonstrate that you have completed an equivalent training to the Foundation Certificate, such as a CPCAB Level 3 counselling course, you may be eligible to start Pathway 1 at the year two Diploma point.
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.
