Course content

The Postgraduate Certificate Integrative Counselling Skills offers a stimulating introduction to the skills, theory and self-awareness needed to be an effective listener and communicator.

Successful completion of this counselling course can lead onto our MA/PG Dip Integrative Counselling. However, there is no automatic progression and all applicants will need to reapply and be successful at interview.

This counselling qualification can also help people in related professions such as social work, nursing or teaching to develop their listening and communication skill.
