Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling Theory and Skills part-time, 1 Year

On the certificate course you will learn basic counselling theory and skills, perhaps to enhance your competence in your present employment. The first year of our BACP accredited Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling may be undertaken on its own to receive the Certificate in Psychodynamic Counselling Theory and Skills.

The certificate course also offers the opportunity to explore counselling for those who are unsure about working with clients, investing time in completing a diploma or perhaps unsure about making a career of counselling. The certificate is not BACP accredited, but it would be transferable for those wishing to complete our accredited diploma at a later date, and may be transferable for a diploma elsewhere.
