Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling

September 2019 – December 2021

We are now accepting applications for our Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling starting in September 2019. The closing date for applications is 30 April 2019. The course is accredited by British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP).

This training aims to:

  • provide students with an in-depth understanding of the psychodynamic approach to counselling informed by both classical theory and current research;
  • develop the range of skills required to practice as a counsellor using the psychodynamic approach;
  • help students develop a sufficient degree of self-awareness and maturity to enable them to practice safely and ethically as a counsellor.

This training is supported by supervised clinical work, which is normally undertaken at Highgate Counselling Centre (HCC).

The course is open to those who have previously completed a Certificate in Counselling Skills or who can demonstrate sound experience of working in a helping role.

The course is part-time and runs from September 2019 until December 2021 (two years and one term). The training is held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7pm to 10pm.
