The Metacognitive Therapy Institute® (MCTI®) is an international mental health company whose mission is to study, educate in, and safe-guard the correct delivery of metacognitive therapy (MCT). The company was founded and is run by Dr. Adrian Wells (originator of MCT) and by Dr. Hans M Nordahl, both of whom are clinical psychologists and university professors.
MCT is a highly effective evidence-based treatment for a range of mental health issues, including anxiety, trauma and depression. Due to its novelty and effectiveness there is a growing demand for training and treatment in this method. This has led to a number of practitioners and trainers offering MCT courses and treatment who have not completed MCTI® recognised training. To make matters worse some do not have a professional health qualification either. We consider this unacceptable and therefore recommend accessing training or treatment through MCTI® channels in order to be confident of the method. On this website you will find links to training, MCTI® registered therapists and other useful resources.
The MCT-institute works in accordance with the guidelines and ethical codes of the health authorities in the UK and EU in research and treatment. Only cognitive oriented treatments that are evidence-based for the various mental health disorders are supervised and disseminated.
