1. Complete the registration form on the right.
We would like to make Pesky gNATs available to as many professionals as possible while balancing this with ensuring those using it are appropriately trained in CBT.
Pesky gNATs is available to mental health professionals with the following qualifications: Clinical Psychology, Educational Psychology, Counselling Psychology, Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, Adult Psychiatry, Post Graduate University Degree Qualification in an evidenced based form of Psychotherapy, Post Graduate Qualification in CBT, Psychological Well-Being Practitioners, and Social Work. Professionals currently training in one of these areas are also welcome to register.
If you are in doubt about whether you are eligible to access Pesky gNATs we suggest you determine if you are eligible to register with the British Association for Behavioural and Cognitive Psychotherapies (BABCP) as an accredited Cognitive Therapist. If you meet their criteria we are happy to make Pesky gNATs available to you.
As you register with us please indicate clearly what your qualifications are. Please also let us know about your current work. E.g. where do you work and with whom. This will help us to speed up your access.
2. We will email you to confirm or decline your registration request
It is possible we will decline your registration request. The most likely reasons for this are:
- You have provided insufficient detail regarding your qualifications or current work.
- Your qualifications do not meet the criteria for use of Pesky gNATs
