If you want to develop your skills as a counsellor, then our course provides an encouraging learning community to help your skills grow to the highest level. We'll teach you how to work with a wide range of client issues in a professional and reflective way, exploring the impact of research on the change process. Working with like-minded peers and tutors, we encourage you to develop your capacity for giving and receiving open and constructive feedback.

You'll learn how to be alongside clients as they work through their experiences and emotions by exploring your own history. We will support you in developing a level of openness and emotional robustness that will help you provide a better level of care to your clients. Through challenges on a personal, professional and academic level, you'll develop the right skill set to help you have a rewarding and fulfilling future as a practitioner of psychotherapy and counselling.
