Studying Counselling will give you the essential knowledge and techniques you need to either work in Counselling related jobs, or study further. You will also meet new people and work towards being more self-aware.
Our Introductory courses are not accredited, therefore they are a great way to have a taste of studying Counselling before committing to a longer course. You’ll learn about the role of a counsellor, how to establish boundaries, communicating with empathy, listening and responding skills and much more.
We also offer Level 2, 3 and 4 courses.
Level 2 and 3 courses are accredited by the awarding body CPCAB. Here you will learn how to use counselling skills ethically and safely, focus on the needs of your client, use self awareness, sustain boundaries, and how to use feedback and reflection to enhance your own skills. These courses will be taught with tutor presentation and demonstration, practical application of skills, individual and group work, discussions, Q&A, internet research, individual research and project work.
Level 4 courses are accredited by the National Counselling Society. Learners here study more in depth topics such as working within client relationships, diversity within client relationships, how to have a user centred approach and more. These skills will help you go on to be a counsellorr.
