Start the challenging, but rewarding journey towards becoming a counsellor through increasing your self-awareness and drawing on your own life experiences.
Increased pressures are being felt by people from all walks of life, creating a demand for the treatment of conditions like anxiety, depression and stress. To address these needs the Government is raising the profile of psychological therapies offered by health services, relying on a pool of qualified counsellors.
Our range of courses attract people from various backgrounds and different levels of ability. The Award in Counselling Concepts provides a comprehensive overview of the profession and allows for a more informed choice over further training options that are available. As you progress you will develop a range of counselling skills and greater theoretical knowledge, as well as interpersonal skills common to most approaches, within a variety of counselling situations.
We will also help you keep up-to-date with continued professional development through our regular workshops.
