"Great mix of people, tutor was very relaxed, engaging and willing to answer all questions, very knowledgable" - Deirdre. Dublin, November 2016


"Two days of experiential learning with a great tutor" - Jane. Dublin, 2016

Cognitive-behavioural therapy is a therapeutic approach which can influence problematic and dysfunctional cognitions, behaviour and emotions by using a goal-oriented, systematic procedure conducted through individual weekly sessions.

It is based on the idea that our thoughts cause our feelings and behaviours, not external things, like people, situations, and events.  The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change.

This workshop is eligible for CPD points from An Bord Altranais (The Irish Nursing Board), The Psychological Society of Ireland and The Addiction Counsellors of Ireland.
