About CBT Training

CBT Training Centre of the North has worked with many individuals and organizations to train & supervise clinicians in cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), compassion focused therapy (CFT) and other forms of training.  

Brief intervention CBT training for primary health care providers and crisis workers is an appropriate alternative to the intensive CBT training and can be offered via special request.

CBT Training Centre of the North helps to prepare individuals to meet the basic standards required by the Academy of Cognitive Therapy (ACT) and/or the Canadian Association of Cognitive and Behavioural Therapies (CACBT) for certification/credentialing.

Training can be offered over one-day or several days and can be tailored to a specific diagnosis or individual needs of an organization.

We also provide workshops for organizations, clients, the public and students on multiple topics including psychotherapy, workplace wellness, 2SLGBTQ+, DBT, charting, socratic dialogue, PTSD, policy and staff development processes among others.

What our trainees are saying


Stacey and her associates have created a truly accessible and unique training and mentorship program. Their provision of such a service here in the north has afforded clinicians and supervisors alike, an opportunity to ensure their teams training needs are met with flexible and realistic timelines. The collaborative learning afforded by the supervision pods sparked creativity and engagement amongst colleagues and ensured our clinicians were ready for their applications for certification with their preferred body. The mentorship has resulted in personal and professional growth for our clinicians and has ensured that clients are accessing high-quality services aligned with the expectations associated with the delivery of structured psychotherapy and the CBT model. I highly recommend this program for entry-level and seasoned clinicians alike.

Melanie Stephens

MHM, RSW, Manager of Clinical Innovation & Partnerships

We have had Stacey Roles on site at our agency to offer CBT training to all staff. Not only was her presentation style easy and approachable, it was evident from the morning of day one that Stacey is very knowledgeable in her practice of CBT. She shared many examples and was always checking to ensure that staff had understood the content before moving along. I would highly recommend Stacey for your onsite training needs!

Shelley Watt Proulx

MSW, RSW, Executive Director, Counselling Centre of East Algoma

I have received training, both in-person and virtually, from CBT Training Centre of the North and so have many of my staff, from Manitoulin Island to Attawapiskat.  The virtual learning was seamless and very inclusive, making it a very cost-effective alternative for more remote areas where there often isn’t the depth of knowledge and experience to provide appropriate supervision to staff learning new modalities.  CBT Training Centre of the North was able to provide solid teaching and supervision allowing my staff to apply for certification with the Academy of Cognitive Therapy and to more competently serve their clients.
