Accredited Diploma in Counselling

Accredited COUNSELLING Training

The programme aims to provide a balance of theory, academic teaching and learning, counselling skills training, supervision of case material and personal development. The course offers an Integrative Humanistic model underpinned by the core model and values of the Person Centred Approach emphasising people’s potential for growth, change and movement.
