Suitability - Who should attend?

You must have gained a Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Studies or equivalent. This should have been gained in the last three years. You will be interviewed by one of the course tutors and undertake a piece of free writing to ensure you can write to the required academic standard. This is a personally demanding qualification, and applicants should ensure that they are not experiencing mental health difficulties when they apply. This does not preclude people with previous mental health difficulties from undertaking the course (in fact, people with past experience of mental health difficulties often make very good counsellors), but you should ensure that you are mentally well when you apply. If you become unwell during the course, our tutors may meet with you to discuss if you are well enough to continue, or whether a break in learning is required. Please see the Fitness to Study Policy.
