Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling

September 2017 – December 2019

We are now accepting applications for our Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling starting in September 2017. The closing date for applications is 31 May 2017. 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 practise as a counsellor using the psychodynamic approach;
  • help students develop a sufficient degree of self-awareness and maturity to enable them to practise 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 2017 until December 2019 (two years and one term). The training is held on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7pm to 10pm.

A professional and career development loan may be available from the Skills Funding Agency to cover the cost of the course.
