The Counselling Diploma is a three-year, BACP Accredited course open to those who have done a Foundation Course in Psychotherapy or Counselling or have practical experience to an equivalent level. Students will mix teaching, experiential learning, group discussion, practical application and microskills exercises with relevant theory. The course will cover recent developments in counselling together with humanistic and psychodynamic approaches.
Qualifying with the Diploma is the first step to obtaining BACP accreditation. If students successfully complete the first two years of training they have the option to complete the Diploma in Counselling or to apply to continue to do the MA/Advanced Diploma.
