Our Training Courses

We offer the opportunity to learn about counselling, ranging from a comprehensive study of the foundations of psychodynamic counselling, through to a more in-depth, clinical and theoretical concentration which includes a supervised clinical placement in a supportive setting.

The latter is a professional qualification that leads to registration with the highly respected British Psychoanalytic Council (BPC) which provides the authority to work as an agency and private counsellor, and offers the opportunity to undertake further clinical hours to gain British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) accreditation.
