Top 10 Online Counselling Courses

Top 10 Online Counselling Courses

At findcourses.co.uk, we've seen an increased interest in online courses from our learners. People around the world have been taking important measures to socially isolate in light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis - learning has shifted from classroom-based courses to online formats. To help you find the types of courses you need, we're calculating our most popular online courses that we think can help you during this time.


Even before the additional stressors brought about by the pandemic, 1 in 6 people in the UK are found to have had a mental health problem according to the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey 2014. Meanwhile, Deloitte estimates that poor mental health costs UK employers a staggering £42 - 45 bn each year.

As the country emerges from lockdown and employees start returning to work, managing employees' well-being will be near the top of many managers' concerns. In this scenario, the demand for counselling and psychological help is likely to increase in the foreseeable future.

In this year of dramatic strife, we at findcourses.co.uk saw an increase in overall interest in healthcare, social care and mental health training courses. Perhaps you are one of those who are considering how you can help and support others. If so, counselling training courses are a great way for you to develop the required skills to support the well-being others.

The topics you can learn from counselling training programmes include various counselling theoretical approaches, interview and active listening techniques, and how to facilitate helpful interactions.
