This course has broken new ground in counselling training in the UK.  It is suitable for students who have completed substantial Certificate level counselling training and who wish to train as  professional counsellors, equipped to work in a range of settings – voluntary, statutory and private practice.

What makes this course different is its emphasis on the integration of faith, spirituality and counselling practice.  In addition to covering the same ground that is covered by comparable humanistic Diploma courses, the course will also give you the opportunity to develop your understanding of human spirituality and to explore the interface between your own developing spirituality and your practice. As we run our own counselling agency we are able to provide placements to students and this also includes free supervision.
