Why choose Network for your counselling diploma?

Choosing where to study your counselling diploma can be daunting. There are all kinds of training providers, offering a wide range of courses. Here are three reasons to choose Network:

  1. Network’s courses are professionally recognised. Our diploma is accredited by both the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS). On graduation, you can become a full member of either professional body. This gives you access to the resources and continuing professional development that will help your career grow and thrive. And it gives your future clients or employers the reassurance that you’re a qualified, accredited counsellor.
  2. We offer an in-house counselling placement. Every year, hundreds of people come to Network for affordable counselling. So instead of searching for their own placement, many students choose to work in our in-house counselling programme. It’s a well organised programme with a dedicated manager and external supervision to support you. It makes it easy to build up the counselling hours you need before graduation.
  3. We are a small, specialist organisation. In a college or university, counselling can be one of hundreds of subjects on offer. But everything that Network does is focussed on counselling. All our teaching staff are experienced counsellors – and many of the management team are too. It’s a great place for networking. building relationships and learning from each other.

We believe that a diploma from Network is a fantastic foundation to your counselling career. If you would like to find out more, please reach out to us at
