Accredited by the British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP), our course is ideal if you are seeking to become a professional counsellor or psychotherapist.

It will provide you with the professional training required to become registered with the BACP and be professionally recognised as a counsellor.

You will consider other psychological theories of counselling to help see the Relational Approach in context. Group and individual supervision offers the opportunity to integrate theory and practice, and you will continue your own personal development. Upon successful completion of our DipHE you can progress straight onto our BSc Therapeutic Counselling.
