  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.
