Studying Counselling offers valuable skills for use in today’s society, where increased pressures are being felt by people from all walks of life. In response to the demands for the treatment of conditions like anxiety, depression and stress there has been recognition that there is a need to increase the availability of psychological therapies (IAPT). Recent government initiatives have put counselling firmly at the heart of a range of accepted treatments offered by health services.
