Supervision and training therapy (VGCt)
Supervision and training therapy
To register at the VGCt as a cognitive behavioural therapist or cognitive behavioural counsellor you must receive supervision and/or training therapy. Before beginning supervision it is mandatory to determine your objectives and the number of sessions to be held. In training therapy, it is possible to determine the subject matter and frequency per session.
The fee for supervision and training therapy is EUR 100,00 per 45-minute session. Sessions can be planned in the evening and via Skype of FaceTime. It is also possible to plan double sessions.
If you have any questions or wish to make an appointment for supervision or training therapy, you can send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or give us a call (+31 6 17 067 499).
In order to become a VGCt-registered cognitive behavioural therapist, you must complete:
- 100 hours of an accredited basic course in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy
- A combined 100 hours of a maximum of four accredited follow-up courses
- 75 to 100 supervision sessions
- 25 to 50 sessions training therapy
- Several ‘practice tests’
- An ‘n=1’ report
If you complete the above within 8 years of finishing the basic course, you can apply for VGCt accreditation as a cognitive behavioural therapist. Your previous training and work setting will also be evaluated before accreditation is awarded.
In order to become a VGCt-registered cognitive behavioural counsellor, you must complete:
- 48 hours of an accredited basic course in Cognitive Behavioural Counselling

If you complete the above within 3 years of finishing the basic course, you can apply for VGCt accreditation as a cognitive behavioural counsellor. Your previous training and work setting will also be evaluated before accreditation is awarded.
After registering as a cognitive behavioural counsellor you will still have to get supervision in order to keep your registration.
