Once qualified, our students have the opportunity to work for us as well as set up their own practice. Tavistock Relationships trained therapists are recognised around the world, and are in high demand.

4 – We train from Foundation Certificate to Clinical Qualification level

You could begin your journey as a therapist with us on a Foundation Certificate course and then continue on to our Clinical Qualification training. If you are already qualified, you might want to deepen your expertise with further training in both psychotherapy and psychosexual therapy. Advanced Standing routes are available for our psychoanalytic or psychodynamic clinical qualification courses. This means that suitably qualified and experienced therapists can complete them in a minimum of two years. We also offer a Diploma in Psychosexual Therapy for qualified therapists who want to develop professional expertise and accreditation in this area. In addition to our foundation and clinical programmes, we offer specialist continuing professional development (CPD) courses and seminars both online and in person.
