We have a track record of producing competent, 'work ready' health professionals with our training, in Low and High Intensity CBT. We have adapted IAPT training from the UK to Australian health settings. This includes specialist CBT therapist training, CBT coach training (NewAccess) and other adaptions. We have successfully adapted our CBT curriculum to primary care, children & young people, older persons and other mental health issues

Clinical Supervision

CBT-based clinical supervision is key to embedding competencies into mental health services. In addition it has a clear clinical governance role and safeguarding function for organisations, staff and service users. Regular supervision ensures skills acquisition and fidelity to evidence based practices. We also provide intensive training for clinical supervisor training for mental health professionals


We offer expert advice and scaffolding for organisations aiming to develop evidence-based services and systems. ​This includes frameworks for flexible service delivery, supervision, clinical governance and risk management.
