The centre has been running Level 4 groups since 2009, and we are proud to consistently receive reports from external verifiers just like this one:

I met with the current TC-L4 candidates; a cohort of 5 female students. They have all completed their entire counselling training at this centre and had only positive and affirming feedback to offer. We discussed:

  • The high levels of professional and personal support shown. 

  • The tutors’ ability to work relationally and model a way of being that 
reflects the ethos of the PC approach being delivered at the centre – 
“honest, authentic and humble, but with the ability to challenge when required”. 

  • The high level of training offered – candidates commented on how grounded and confident they feel in their agency environments, both personally and professionally. They feel they have been prepared for the work of the counsellor very robustly. 

  • The flexibility of tutors and their ability to appropriately adapt the training programme to respond to meet their learning needs.

This qualification is right for you if you would like to:

  • train to become a counsellor in a wide range of working environments, ranging from counselling agencies and health providers to schools and voluntary organisations.
  • provide the best possible professional and ethical service for those seeking counselling
  • continue your own journey of self-discovery and self awareness

Further testimony about our excellence in delivering this course is as follows:

Work observed was of a high standard and demonstrated an ability to write reflectively; candidates are clearly developing a knowledge and self-awareness consistent with this level of training. Tutor feedback was detailed and evidenced appropriate challenge to students, in order to promote professional and personal development.
