GCU and the University of Strathclyde have launched the Psychological Therapies Knowledge Exchange (PTKE) Programme.
Since 2005, the Universities have been working closely together to develop a BPS accredited Doctorate in Counselling Psychology, and our PTKE Programme now opens up many of the modules and units on this programme to the wider professional community. You will find here a wealth of opportunities for continuing professional development: from CBT to existential therapy, group work to counselling with children and young people.
The courses are designed to meet the ongoing training needs of psychologists, counsellors, psychotherapists and other professionals in mental health.
We also offer business services, including consultancy, contract and collaborative research and Knowledge Transfer Partnerships (KTPs), so please get in touch.
