Who is this course for?

This qualification is suitable for those working in professional or voluntary roles providing therapeutic counselling to clients, and who wish to gain the key knowledge, understanding and practical skills required for such a role. The course is related directly to your job role and helps you to reflect on your performance at work and review your working practices.

To successfully complete the course, you will need to complete 100 hours of counselling practice with clients over two years. This is something that must be arranged by the student as we cannot provide this. You must also have regular supervision when working with clients to ensure both your own and your client’s safety, as well as to aid your skills and development.

We recommend that you undergo some personal therapy throughout the duration of the course, particularly as the role can sometimes be emotionally challenging. Personal therapy helps you become an ethical, safer and more understanding counsellor, as well as providing you with the opportunity to find out more about yourself.

Requirements

  • Students must be aged 18 or above
  • Students must be able to demonstrate skills in Maths and English at Level 2
  • You must be in-service or delivering sessions voluntarily – you will be observed in your workplace setting
