Course content

This is a two year modular course which follows two years of previous training, either at The Minster Centre with the Counselling Diploma or an equivalent course elsewhere. The Minster Centre prides itself in offering small study groups, personal attention and a friendly, supportive learning environment which encourages personal development. The theoretical input will include psychodynamic, humanistic, bodywork and relational thinking within a structure which contains theoretical, experiential and practice components.
