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. These courses have a strong emphasis on personal growth and self-exploration, which has often seen students go through a life-changing experience.

The course is aimed at those already working in different occupations who want to develop their skills and gain a qualification to work professionally as a counsellor.
