Only certain courses are allowed to be supported by the nus. Which leads me to wonder what the cognitive behavioral therapy course is worth.

Is thos an introductory course? Does it allow to carry out supporvised practices to be accredited post completion of the course?

It appears that if it is not an accademic course its not supported. This is important when you spend hundreds on a course.

I took the CBT Level 5 Diploma course last year, it is very intensive about all aspects about CBT and was very interesting, but it will not qualify for BACP accreditation as there is no face-to-face practice, it is 100% online, writing assignments. Many employers looking for counsellors ask for BACP accreditation, so unless you feel confident starting up as a self-employed counsellor after this course, perhaps look for a course with supervised hours within it.
