Why study with us?

We’re not like other counselling colleges, we’re proud to be unique and your experience with us will be unique too. Here’s why:

  • We keep our group sizes small- giving you the best opportunity to learn. You’d never find groups of 18+ on our courses.
  • We teach the things many colleges don’t- CBT, creative therapy, knowledge of common mental health problems. We teach the same course info but with our unique additions, giving you essential skills that are often left out.
  • Lots of one-to-one tutor time. Your tutor will offer one-to-one tutorials plus they are available to speak with any time.
  • Our college is based inside our agency- that means your training is in the context of an agency, giving you more experience and knowledge.
  • We’re passionate about what we teach, that’s why we support you to become passionate counsellors instead of functional counsellors (we think there’s a big difference!)
  • All of the profit our college makes goes straight back into our charity. That means your training actually directly helps clients to access counselling- it’s a 2 way street and we’re delighted to know we’re helping both trainee counsellors and clients on their journey’s.
