  • The chance to help other people

Addiction Counselling is helping those who have an addiction with something to overcome it. This can be anything from alcohol, to sex, drugs or shoplifting. Many counsellors have said that they receive a great satisfaction from knowing that they are helping many people to live better lives, and having to liaise with different people on a regular basis is another rewarding perk of the job.

  • Improved career prospects

Often counsellors do not specialise in a particular field; they study a general counselling course with the intent of being able to help many people. However, specialising can be of more benefit as your knowledge will be focused and your clients will be more inclined to come to you. Our Addiction Counselling course is a knowledge-based course that can help you with any further qualifications that will lead you to your new career.

  • Promising salary

Salaries can start anywhere between £20,000 and £26,000, with the opportunity of earn up to £50,000 with experience. Private counsellors also tend to charge per client, with this leaning towards £50 per hour.

  • Award-winning tutor support

Each of our students are provided with a tutor that will guide them through their studies. The tutor will advise, give feedback and answer any queries that you may have for the duration of you course.
