Diploma in Person-centred Counselling & Therapy

Level 5 • Part-time • Cornwall College St Austell


This programme is for those wishing to train to become a professional counsellor. It carries Gold Standard Accreditation awarded by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and successful completion means that you can practice independently as a qualified counsellor. For our next intake, attendance is required 1 day a week 9.30am to 4.30pm, term time only for 2 years. The programme contains an in-depth module on personal development, as well as counselling practice, professional development and counselling theory and psychology modules. You will develop your counselling skills, your understanding of the counselling process and expand your ability to be in a professional relationship with your client. You will do this within a Person-Centred or Integrated framework and in the second year you will visit a range of counselling models. You will be required to carry out 100 hours of counselling work with clients (in addition to counselling practice with peers) over the duration of the programme through placements with counselling agencies across Cornwall. We have strong links with placement providers and can support this process. You will need to keep accurate records of your client work, and if the placement does not provide supervision, you will need to engage a counselling supervisor to support your client work. Again, we can offer you guidance with this. Undertaking personal counselling whilst you are on the course is required and we would expect a minimum of 12 sessions. Additional expenses to budget for throughout the programme (please note these are the current sums and are subject to change): Personal counselling – approximately £5 upwards per hour Supervision – if not paid for or supplied by your placement, approximately £25 upwards per hour for individual supervision and approximately £20 per hour for group supervision. Across 2 years this will amount to around £400 Enhanced DBS Certificate (DBS means Disclosure and Barring Service, previously known as the Enhanced CRB) – £44. Students will need to meet the cost of their own DBS; however, many placements provide these free of charge. 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.
