The courses are part-time to enable students to study and train at a pace that fits in with their life
We believe passionately in the power of counselling for children and young people. And we believe that children and young people deserve professionally and appropriately trained counsellors.
That’s why we work in academic partnership with ARU to deliver the following:
This is a 1-year, full-time course which provides students with the specific and unique skills and theory to be able to counsel and support children and young people. You will be required to be in training one full day a week.

We also deliver courses designed to support your curiosity and continual development.
For those considering a career in counselling and perhaps planning to apply for the DipHE in Counselling (Children and Young People), this course is an excellent platform to increase your understanding.
