PCE-CfD is an innovative development in counselling and psychotherapy. The qualification is recognised by the NHS and enhances career prospects for qualified therapists.
PCE-CfD training enables therapists to understand the requirements of working within an NHS environment. It deepens understanding of the connection between research, theory and practice.
Research into person-centred experiential practice that engages with emotional processing has shown to be effective with clients who are depressed. At the University of Nottingham we are creating a community network of PCE-CfD therapists.
We accept applications from counsellors already employed as an NHS Talking Therapies: for anxiety and depresstion* therapist, subject to Health Education England (HEE) funding. We also accept applications from humanistic counsellors who do not have HEE funding and wish to self-fund their place on the programme.
Delegates are supported throughout the 18-month long programme by being allocated with a PCE-CfD Supervisor and the opportunity to attend an annual refresher day.
