Our selection of part time and intensive courses will offer you the flexibility in which you can train to become a qualified counsellor. The essence of counselling is the establishment of a therapeutic relationship in which the client experiences being heard and understood with sensitivity. An effective counsellor can create a safe space to communicate empathic understanding and an ability to listen effectively. Our experienced and highly qualified staff will guide you through this process which will involve understanding the theoretical concepts of counselling alongside aspects of self-reflection and evaluation.
