Counselling Academy

Our tutors are not only highly qualified tutors but are in fact practising counsellors. Dual qualified tutors make our programme one of a kind and gives our learners a high quality learning experience.

Due to unforeseen circumstances, our Weymouth and Dorchester admission sessions are being postponed with immediate effect. The Tutor due to deliver these courses will now not be doing so. We are currently in the process of recruiting a new Tutor, and until we do so, we are unable to confirm the date of the new admission sessions. You are still able to apply for the admission sessions and we will keep your details on record. We will be in touch with anyone who has applied in the near future when we are in a position to confirm when we can go ahead. Thank you for your patience and we apologise for any inconvenience. Please note – this applies to Weymouth and Dorchester sessions only.
