CBT certification typically requires formal education, training, and supervised clinical experience. While there are many free resources available to learn about CBT, obtaining a recognised certification usually involves completing a structured programme that requires some level of payment. This is because certification programmes often involve assessments, evaluations, and supervision from qualified professionals. However, you can still find some free or low-cost options that provide certificates of completion or participation, which can demonstrate your commitment to learning about CBT.

So just what is TactileCBT?

“It is a proven unique interactive psychological technique that can rapidly effect change in people’s lives” PBT, also known as TactileCBT, is a modified version of CBT. Although it draws heavily on CBT structure and strategy, it also deviates significantly from the traditional CBT approach. Dr Aaron Beck developed the original CBT therapy more than fifty years ago. The new therapy originated in the clinical work of Martin Marion Shirran at their Elite Clinic in Spain. And, because the approach is versatile and is easy to use, it also produces fast and effective results.

The PBT book is an effective ‘Self Help’ tool for those who wish to introduce change into their lives.

  • How Pause Button Therapy/TactileCBT can change your life.
  • The alternative choices and actions you have.
  • How to develop an emotional connection.
  • Introduction to Time Perspective, and its importance.
  • The role of thoughts
  • Encourages the recording of your therapy journey.

PBT Wristbands and CardsPBT wristbands and cards
PBT Wristbands and Cards

The PBT cards are of ‘credit card’ size and quality. Each one has a slot cut out, so you easily fit it on to your key ring. Or alternatively, you can keep it in your credit card wallet. The PBT embossed silicone wristbands are available in two sizes, small and large, and are in the pack with the PBT card.

As stated in the PBT book, we have found that clients generally benefit from the tactile use of the cards and wristbands. However, many therapists globally have informed us that the use of any, locally purchased wristbands, can deliver a similar result. The price of a pack of two cards, and two wristbands (one large and one small) is just £8.95 inclusive of postage and packing, within Europe. The cost inclusive of postage and packaging for international clients is £12.95. Clients are also encouraged to consider buying the Client Work Book; details are above. Therapists, or organisations, requiring multiple cards and wristbands, can contact us for pricing variations.
