The intermediate Training in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) follows on from the Introduction to Acceptance and Commitment Therapy two day course.
The course is primarily aimed at practicing counsellors, psychotherapists and psychologists who want to introduce the ACT model in a consistent way into their client work.
What is taught in this training?
The training consists of six one day sessions over a five month period (9.30am to 4pm with an hour for lunch). The training will involve a combination of
- Experiential exercises (mindfulness)
- Teaching of theory and discussion of how it relates to client work
- Skills practise in break out rooms
- ACT supervision and discussion of use of ACT with current clients
When will the course run?
Training dates for the next course running with spaces are as follows (all Mondays, 930am – 4pm with lunch from 1pm – 2pm,):

There will need to be at least six people signing up to the training for it to run. A full refund will be given for those that sign up if the minimum is not reached. The training will take place at The Affinity Centre and so the maximum group size will be eight people.
How much does the training cost?
The total cost for the training is £600. You can pay this as a deposit of £150 and then six monthly payments of £75 once the course has started. If you sign up to the training you are required to commit to paying for the full amount of the course, even if you cannot attend every Monday. If you miss a training day all handouts will be supplied for that day.
Who is running the training?
The training will be delivered by Ian Tomlinson PTSTA. Ian uses ACT with clients every day and has had long-term supervision in ACT with one of the UK’s most highly respected experts in the model.
Ian studied ACT in London, basically because it was the only place he could undergo training. This training provides an opportunity to study ACT in the North West of England and is one of the only trainings running outside of the capital.
