Short Courses
Introduction to Counselling

Are you interested in becoming a counsellor, but unsure of what route to take or where to start?

Do you know what you should be looking for in a counselling course?

Our 12-hour online course is designed for anyone who is interested in finding out more about counselling training. The course gives you an insight into the various modalities that are widely practiced and also give you a taster of the core skills you will need to become a counsellor.

This course is also relevant for those in the helping professions such as mental health working, coaching, nursing and teaching. Although online, this is an interactive course where you have lots of opportunities to practice skills, delivered by experienced, qualified counsellors.

Our CPD group organises events throughout the year on a range of topics that are relevant to the themes we are seeing in our clients or in society.  These CPDs are designed for counselling students, counselling practitioners and other interested professionals.
