Course overview

What is counselling?

Counselling can take all sorts of different forms, depending on the persons needs and what type of therapy may be suitable. Most therapy will be planned and occur in regular sessions.

People can see a counsellor on their own, but they can also see them with family, partners, or with a group of people with a similar issue. During the session, the counsellor may run through specific exercises to help with the problem, or they may just make the person(s) talk more generally about how they’re feeling.

The therapist will be impartial but they will also be understanding. They will give options and information on what things may help the problem, but they won’t tell them what they should think or do.

During this Counselling Studies QLS Level 4 course, you will explore the development of counselling and psychology,  the psychodynamic approach, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), and much more.

As well as providing an excellent knowledge base in counselling, this bundle is ideal for:
• Learners who are working in a counselling role and want to boost their knowledge and skills
• Those who want to kick-start their career in counselling

This bundle is approved by the ACCPH (Accredited Counsellors, Coaches, Psychotherapists, and Hypnotherapists), at the end of this course students will be able to join and become a member of the ACCPH. The ACCPH is an independent self-regulated professional body for counsellors, psychotherapists, and hypnotherapists.
