What are Therapeutic Wellbeing Skills?

Therapeutic Wellbeing Skills develop ways of working effectively with people in a relational and therapeutic way. Relationship is a crucial part of the healing process and the dynamics of relating empathically will underpin the course.

Other additional areas to consider


Personal Therapy

While it is not mandatory, it is highly recommended and good practice to attend personal therapy alongside your training. We appreciate people have emotional lives and may wish to explore the impact of the topics covered in a supportive and confidential setting. Attending personal therapy allows students to experience first-hand the dynamics and benefits of an empathic, well-being relationship.





Once qualified Therapeutic Wellbeing Practitioners may find it beneficial to continue to receive support for the work they undertake. TACT has a bank of experienced supervisors who are able to offer bespoke supervision if required.
