It is an exciting time to think about becoming a counsellor, as there is a growing recognition and acknowledgement of the value of our work. However, it can feel a little confusing as you begin to research the different courses and training on offer – our team is always happy to talk you through this and help you find the best training for you. Please take some time to browse through our site’s pages and learn more about us and the training we provide. Once you have done this, you may like to contact us and arrange to visit the college or chat over the phone.
Whatever your reasons for wanting to begin or further your training in counselling, you will benefit from our small groups and the warm, humanistic support and challenge offered by all of our training team. All are practising counsellors and supervisors, and each brings a wealth and diversity of counselling experience and training approaches. We recognise and celebrate this uniqueness in our team, which is reflected in our training methodologies for you. Many past students have confirmed this, and we recommend you browse through the testimonials provided by a few of them, now qualified counsellors, who are dedicated to and love their counselling work.
As you decide about future training, you can be confident that our courses are delivered within the guidelines of the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society (NCPS) and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) Ethical Framework for the Counselling Professions. Since Devon Counselling College was founded in 2006, annual reviews have earned us top-grade reports and special recognition for our extraordinary ability to provide a caring and nurturing environment alongside efficient and effective attention to detail. Both of these aspects are important to us and, we believe, to you as you begin your counselling training.
