Renew Counselling and Training



We’re proud to be known as a centre for excellence for both our counselling and training offer. While Renew is rooted in over 100 years of history, we’re also a dynamic and forward-looking organisation that places high importance on learning and continuous professional development.  

We can offer you high-quality, professional training at a range of levels. Whether you’re just starting out in your counselling journey, looking for extra support in a caring profession or brushing up on your skills and knowledge, we have a course for you.  

We’re also proud to partner with Anglia Ruskin University (ARU) to deliver a number of our courses. 

Please note that BACP (British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy) is piloting a new bursary scheme for counselling and psychotherapy training to support their work to improve equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) in the counselling professions.

Our tutors provide specialist training that is exciting, innovative and meets professional training standards. 

The Diploma of Higher Education is part-time to enable students to study and train at a pace that fits in with their life and commitments. The BA (Top-Up) is full time, for one year. We work in academic partnership with ARU to deliver courses in counselling for adults, children and young people.  

 We also deliver courses designed to support your curiosity and continual professional development, including our 12-week ‘Introduction to Counselling’ course.

We believe that high-quality, affordable counselling should be accessible to everyone that needs it. That’s why we’re passionate about equipping our trainees with the tools that they need to become excellent counsellors.
