Level 4 Diploma in Counselling Practice
Our Diploma in Counselling Practice meets all the requirements required to apply for National Counselling Society (NCS) registration as a student member and qualified counsellor. The programme lasts for two years part time with a taught programme of 18 months followed by a 6 month placement period when you will need to complete 100 hours in a suitable placement.
Arm yourself with the necessary skills, theoretical base and self-awareness that counsellors need in order to work with clients in an agency or private setting. Successful completion of this Diploma provides you with ethical and theoretical frameworks and skills you need to work in this rewarding and fulfilling career.
The Diploma is aimed at people who have completed a level 2 and 3 qualification in counselling. However, exceptional candidates, who have completed a level 2 qualification, may be able to proceed directly into this Diploma based on their related qualification and work/life experience. All applicants must have a pre-course interview with the course tutors to assess their suitability.
The course is interactive, thought provoking and consists of experiential activities, personal research, group work and discussions.
Our highly experienced and qualified counselling tutors will guide you through the course, ensuring you have an informative, instructive and fulfilling learning journey towards your goal of being a counsellor.
This Diploma is aimed at individuals seeking to practice as counsellors but is also ideal for those who wish to develop their self-awareness, communication skills and relationships with others.
