Counselling

Are you good at listening and able to understand other people’s problems?

Helping others deal with stresses, strains and serious mental health issues can be an incredibly rewarding career choice.

Training as a counsellor involves a mixture of theoretical study and practical experience. And while taking courses can boost your job prospects and your knowledge, you don’t necessarily need a degree to become a counsellor.

All of our counselling courses are awarded by the Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB). CPCAB is the UK’s leading counselling awarding body, and the only one in Europe to specialise in counselling and psychotherapy.

Where it can lead to

There are number of routes you can take following successful completion of a course. Further study can include Higher Education courses or a Higher Apprenticeship where you will expand your skills through study whilst earning a wage. Or you may choose to move directly into employment.
