This qualification is intended for anyone who wants to find out more about
counselling and/or anyone who wants to use counselling skills in a formal or
informal helping role. It is a nationally recognised qualification awarded by
the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB).
Important: This training is not suitable for anyone who is currently in a
state of severe emotional difficulty (for example after a recent bereavement or
relationship breakdown) and/or severe psychological confusion (for example
severe mental health issues). If this applies to you, it’s better to seek
support now, and take up training at a later date when you are feeling less
vulnerable and more resilient.
This is because the course involves experiential elements that will involve
some personal disclosure and associated personal developmental activities. If
you wish to speak to a tutor about this, please contact Customer Services, and
someone from the Counselling Team will call you.
