Our course is a fun course based on a humanistic approach and including many Integrative theories. The emphasis is on working with a humanistic core model and exploring the integration of theory, research, practice and self-awareness.
This qualification is not suitable for those who are currently in a state of severe emotional difficulty or severe psychological confusion as the course involves some personal disclosure and associated personal development activities.
The integrative counselling aspect explores, challenges and compares contemporary theories to life. It also addresses the thinking, feeling and behavioural aspects of human functioning.
The integrative perspective draws from a range of theoretical orientations including person centred, psychoanalytic, adlerian, existential, gestalt, transaction analysis and cognitive behavioural therapy.
The course is designed to help develop and train counsellors to become competent and ethically-sound practitioners working within an agency setting.
