Hertfordshire based The Counselling Foundation, leading provider of professional counselling training courses, and charitable counselling has recently been awarded the BACP’s prestigious five year re-accreditation for it’s Diploma and Advanced Diploma courses in psychodynamic counselling.

Established in 1974, the Foundation has been delivering part time counsellor training courses, including it’s full five year programme for those wanting to become a counsellor.

It is approximated that for every one person that seeks support via a therapeutic talking experience, ten other people are indirectly affected.

Noel Hargrave, Clinical Manager said “re-accreditation is not a formality, and is a reflection of the hard work carried out by our dedicated training team which ensures we adhere to around 150 detailed conditions that need to be met as part of the process, and it includes a detailed and rigorous audit of all aspects of the teaching and the course”.

A professional who wishes to practice counselling should be accredited as it enables clients, employers and practitioners to make an informed decision when choosing a therapist, service, or counselling training.

Our Advanced Diploma, (in combination with the preceding Diploma Course), constitutes a course accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).  For students and graduates, it offers a standard of practitioner training guaranteed to be accepted towards Student Member, Registered Member MBACP and Counsellor/Psychotherapist Accreditation.

The Counselling Foundation offer a breadth of courses to help anyone interested in a career in counselling.
