The Minster Centre

The Minster Centre was founded in 1978 as the first integrative training programme in the UK. It has now established itself as the leading Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling Training Institute in Europe.

Our Diploma in Integrative Counselling and our Advanced Diploma in Integrative Psychotherapy and Counselling are accredited by the key UK professional bodies, the BACP and the UKCP. We also offer a Master's Degree which is awarded by Middlesex University.

We run introductory courses open to anyone who is interested in learning how to use counselling skills, as well as Continuing Professional Development workshops and a Diploma in Supervision training for qualified and experienced therapists. The Minster Centre offers more face-to-face training hours and a greater opportunity for personal development than many other training organisations.

We offer a unique perspective of psychotherapy and counselling training, as we combine a strong theoretical integrative grounding with an emphasis on the importance of experiential learning.

Courses

Course

Foundation in Counselling and Psychotherapy (Fast-track)

The course provides a comprehensive and critical introduction to the field of psychotherapy and counselling from an integrative viewpoint. It enables students to develop a basic grasp of the main strands of psychotherapy and counselling theory and acquire basic counselling and psychotherapeutic skills. During the course students will increase their own self-awareness, their awareness of others and their capacity to relate and interact with others. The course can be taken as a stand-alone or as preparation for training to be a counsellor or psychotherapist. About a third to a half of the students who successfully complete this course continue to join the first year of the Minster Centre professional training courses, others continue to train elsewhere or pursue training in related areas. The Minster Centre currently offers two formats for a Foundation course; a year-long course or a Fast Track course delivered over 8 weekends. Both courses cover the same basic material and offer similar numbers of hours of training.
