The professional/postgraduate diplomas routes are both accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

The courses are designed to provide training and education in an integrative approach to counselling. The course reflects the four elements of training, namely: theory, counselling skills, professional issues and personal development. There is a compulsory residential weekend offering the space to develop personal development skills and group dynamics in a tranquil setting. Reflexivity and development of self-awareness link to all aspects of the course as well as being facilitated in the personal development group.

The final masters stage is recommended for those interested in research and may also further enhance professional opportunities.
