A career in counselling can be a very rewarding and fulfilling vocation providing opportunities to work flexible hours whilst making a real difference to the life and well being of the people that you are helping.
Our Counselling courses are certified by the nationally respected Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB) and our progression routes enable you to go from entry level right through to fully qualified status.
If you are interested in pursuing a career in this challenging but rewarding field then contact us and speak to one of our customer services team.
This course is for those who want to learn initial counselling skills to help and support others, either in the voluntary sector or in an employed capacity. It will not teach you to be a counsellor, but it may help you to decide whether or not you want to train as one.
