Student discussion in course seminarThe Centre for Rational Emotive Behaviour Therapy is the only Albert Ellis Institute accredited training centre in the United Kingdom. Our courses are accredited by the Albert Ellis Institute, rather than the University of Birmingham who act as host for the Centre.
