Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
The final leg of the journey towards becoming a professionally qualified counsellor; this Level 4 Diploma is delivered over two academic years.
This, along with 100 placement-based hours, provides the necessary training and qualification for you to progress towards national accreditation status with the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) or equivalent memberships, should you wish to do so at a future point in your career.
At this stage of your training you are encouraged to develop a range of skills in counselling, self-awareness and self-assessment. You are encouraged to assume an active responsibility for your own learning and establish principles and good practice from a shared analysis with fellow learners and trainers of experiences on the course and related experiences.
You will benefit from our small group sizes and the up-to-date, varied knowledge and experience of our progressive team of trainers who are all experienced practicing counsellors and supervisors currently working in a variety of fields.
Our belief is that counsellors, like clients, are all unique individuals and as such, one model or way of working does not fit all. Therefore our commitment to you is to provide a safe, supportive and challenging learning environment where you can develop your own integrated model by way of incorporating those theories that you most enjoy and decide best suit your own unique counselling style.
As a pre-requisite for admission to the Diploma course learners must possess a Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills or the equivalent obtained elsewhere.
Entry is at the discretion of Devon Counselling College and applicants should be able to satisfy us of their suitability for and commitment to the course at an initial interview which will be held prior to the start of the course.
