This 2 year course gives learners the core practitioner training to work as a therapeutic counsellor in an agency context in both health care and non-medical settings. You will develop your knowledge, therapeutic competence and research awareness from your previous counselling qualifications you have completed.

During the course you will cover 8 units throughout the course which include the following topics:

  • Personal and Professional Development Through Inclusive Practice
  • Empathic Communication in Professional Practice
  • Preparing for Research
  • Developing Effective Therapeutic Relationships
  • The Impact of Significant Childhood Experience on Development

During these units you will have time to practise and develop your counselling skills, consider your own continuing personal development in counselling, and develop knowledge about human development in relation to counselling. You are required to complete a period of at least 100 hours of work experience within an agency across the 2-year course as well as attending the taught sessions.
