Are you a good listener and able to empathise with other people’s problems?

Our vocational counselling courses will give you the theoretical and practical skills you need for a successful career in counselling.

The courses at Level 2 and 3 are aimed at those who already have counselling skills and are looking to enhance their knowledge and take the next steps in their training.
