Qualifications for learners aspiring to work as a counsellor.

Offered at Level 1, Level 2 and as an Access to HE Diploma at Level 3, our counselling qualifications offer learners who are looking to develop the wide range of skills required for a career in therapeutic counselling and psychotherapy, or to simply expand their knowledge of mental health and personal therapy as part of their professional development.

At Access to HE level, learners have the opportunity to develop skills that will enable progression to a range of degree-level programmes including a focus on counselling and psychology topics. Many learners join these types of degrees after following A level studies, so the Diploma will place the Access to HE learners on a level with those who have followed A level studies.

Our counselling qualifications are available at the following levels, please click the headings to reveal a full list of qualifications available at that level.
