This programme is intended for people who have completed an introductory counselling course, typically at a Level 2 who wish to develop their counselling skills further or gain a qualification in Higher Education which qualifies them to apply for the Level 5 Diploma in Person Centred Counselling (a professional qualification in Counselling)

The Certificate of Advanced Counselling, enables you develop your counselling skills within a person-centred framework. You are not required to work with clients, nor work within a placement, as this is an academic course which does not in itself provide a profession qualification, but can create a pathway towards achieving this.

Please note, that there is no automatic progression route between our courses. Each qualification requires a rigorous assessment process including an interview, and due to limited places, you may be placed on a waiting list or may not be successful on your first application.

  What You Will Learn

You will develop your counselling skills with peers and tutors. You will also focus on learning about counselling theory and personal development, counselling ethics and the principles which inform the Ethical Framework for Good Practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy. Professional counselling boundaries, ethical dilemmas and social issues and their impact on the counselling process are also explored.

  Entry Requirements

You must hold a Level 2 Counselling Skills qualification. Must be over 19 with experience of using counselling skills, as well as the satisfaction of the interviewing tutor of your aptitude for this level of study.

  Assessment

Assessment is through coursework and presentations, and we use a self, peer and tutor assessment process.

My time at Cornwall College has quite literally changed my life. Completing the access course has allowed me to progress onto university and fulfill my dream of becoming a midwife.

I chose Cornwall College as the hours for the access course suited my family commitments. After attending an open day, I was also impressed with the support available to students.

The support I have received from my lecturers, my tutor and fellow students has been amazing. After being out of education for 15 years the access course has given me the skills and confidence to progress onto university. The learning curve over the last 9 months has been incredible and I will be forever grateful to those that supported me.
