In 2002 the Centre of Therapy acquired premises on Sauchiehall Street and from there continued the training of more than 100 cognitive behavioural therapists.
From these graduates, was formed a group of BABCP accredited psychotherapists and qualified therapists, who as members of the Centre are able to provide Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to those with mild to moderate mental health difficulties who ask for their help.
By 2012 the demand for the Centre’s training and therapy increased to a level which required more space and the Centre was able to purchase the present building at 8 Newton Place.
The Centre has eight therapy rooms with the potential of providing seventy sessions per room per week.
The Centre also has a training suite with two training rooms as well as additional group work rooms which provide the accommodation for the training of three groups of counselling skills trainees per week and four groups of diploma level trainees per month.
The centre also delivers 3-4 Introductory Courses in CBT per year and 6-8 continual professional development training events per year.
The Centre team work toward sustainability by creating opportunities for graduates to work as apprentices to more experienced and qualified trainers thus ensuring the future of the training and therapy.
At the heart of the practice is the provision of clinical supervision to therapists, supervisors and trainers. This provides the essential oversight necessary to the maintenance of good practice.
The Board of Directors and Staff are working toward delivering excellence in training and the highest quality of therapeutic service to our students and clients and are consistently looking for additional opportunities for growth and development.
