Required Training for this Role
As a child and adolescent psychotherapist (CAPT) in the NHS you will often be required to work with children and young people whose symptoms are severe and may have continued for a long time, or whose life circumstances are complex and impact on their recovery. Your training is consequently longer to enable a breadth and depth of skills and competencies to develop. In England, your training will be funded by Health Education England and include teaching, supervision, personal psychoanalysis and a four-year salaried training post. There are five training centres in the UK; two in London, one in Birmingham, one in Leeds and one in Glasgow. Clinical training placements are available across the UK.
