Additional costs

Your course may require you to undertake personal therapy, and/or to engage in clinical supervision for any placement work you do. The costs for personal therapy and clinical supervision are not included in the tuition fees, so you will be expected to pay for them yourself, in addition to the tuition fees listed above. You must continue to engage in personal therapy and/or supervision during any time taken out of training. The approximate cost of therapy is between £50-£70 an hour, for supervision the cost is around £55-£75 an hour. If you start working with participants/clients during your studies, you must also take out professional indemnity insurance which costs around £80 per year.
