Debbie asked:

I am a counsellor , you have stated, taking the course i will not qualify as an art therapist, who is the awarding body ? And accreditation by?

There really is no set route as there are so many different factors to take into consideration, such as existing qualifications, experience etc. What I advise students to do, is to have a look online at universities that might be offering courses of this nature and speak to them directly as they will be able to confirm for you w
