Diploma in Person-centred Counselling & Therapy

Level 5 • Part-time • Cornwall College Camborne


This programme is ideal if you wish to become a professional counsellor, or if your job role contains a significant element of counselling. It has been accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and successful completion means you can practice independently as a qualified counsellor. For September 2020 intake, attendance is required 1 day a week, term time only for 2 years (Tuesdays 9.30am to 4.30pm) The programme contains an in-depth module on personal development, as well as counselling practice, professional development and counselling psychology modules. You will start to work with clients as a counsellor, practise and develop your counselling skills, develop 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 framework and in the second year you will visit other counselling models. You will be required to carry out 100 hours of counselling work with clients (i.e. 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. It would be inconsistent with a person-centred model for you to have no experience of personal counselling as a client, so it is highly recommended that you undertake personal counselling while you are on the course. Additional expenses (current sums, subject to change) to budget for throughout the programme are: personal therapy – approximately £25-£35 per hour supervision – if not paid for or supplied by your placement, approximately £30-£60 per 1.5 hours for monthly individual supervision; approximately £20 per hour for group supervision. 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. personal insurance – approximately £25 – £90 per year; discounts available from some insurers for BACP members; monthly payment options usually available. we recommend you that you undertake a professional membership of the BACP – £70 per year, or £35 at reduced rate for people who are not in paid employment
