Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling (TC-L4)

BACP Approved Practitioner Qualification

About the Course

This is a two-year Diploma in Counselling based on CPCAB’s model of practitioner development and therapeutic change.

The course is also an Approved Practitioner Qualification by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP), the registration and accrediting body for UK counsellors and psychotherapists.

The course has been designed around the person-centred approach developed by Carl Rogers and the experiential approach that has developed from the work of Eugene Gendlin.

The course is delivered by a highly qualified and knowledgeable tutor team in delivering person-centred counselling training.  

South Coast Wellbeing and Training is committed to providing individual and intensive counselling training at all levels of qualification. To achieve this, the group size is kept to between 8 and  14 trainees. The trainers’ experience over the years is that smaller groups bring out the best in trainees whereas in larger groups many trainees often get lost and find it difficult to find their voice.

You will be trained to achieve a high degree of competency in offering counselling that is based on the six conditions Rogers saw as essential to therapeutic change, and in gaining the skills to work with clients in Gendlin’s process experiential way.

You will also be introduced to differing ideological and philosophical models of human development and change, and to different models of therapy such as Gestalt therapy, Transactional Analysis (TA) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).
