100-hour Certificate programme. For Personal Development or for those who want to prepare for professional qualification. Taught & designed to Level 4 on the NFQ. 

 

This comprehensive and rewarding course offers you both a stimulating learning experience and an enjoyable introduction to the world of counselling and psychotherapy. The four distinct course modules follow a natural progression from personal development and theoretical approaches to the skills practice and an overview of counselling and psychotherapy as a profession. You can expect a mix of traditional classroom-style and more hands-on experiential learning, with the opportunity to forge real and often lasting connections with your colleagues. Our classes typically include students from a wide range of ages and backgrounds, offering opportunities for rich interpersonal sharing and learning. Indeed, in keeping with the ethos of counselling and psychotherapy, each student’s individual story is respected, and their unique talents encouraged throughout the course.

 

WHO IS THIS COURSE FOR? 


This course is for those who wish to learn more about both the inner workings of counselling and psychotherapy and themselves as individuals. It will also appeal to those who intend to pursue a career in the field and become an IACP accredited professional or who wish to incorporate counselling knowledge and skills into their current personal/ professional lives.

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DOING THIS COURSE? 

The course aims to be both intellectually stimulating and useful. The skills and knowledge acquired may be effectively applied to any number of ‘real life’ situations and professions. These skills may include increased self-awareness and empathy, improved communication and listening abilities, and a range of counselling tools that can enhance interpersonal relationships. Students wishing to pursue a career in the field will also be provided with the essential foundational elements needed as part of enrolment for a further qualification, such as our BSc Honours Degree in Counselling and Psychotherapy
