Wrote about our program:


"The three-year cognitive-behaviour therapy training program offered by the Greek Association of Cognitive-Behavioural Psychotherapies offers an outstanding curriculum of cutting edge training and supervision. The course curriculum has selected only the best materials in the professional literature and offer comprehensive training and supervision by one of the most noted cognitive-behaviour therapists in Europe. In my opinion, Dr. Simos has done an outstanding job at assembling a top rate program and is to be commended. I highly recommend this program to anyone seeking introductory and advanced training in cognitive-behavioual therapy."
