The Modern World of Counselling including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)
Counselling and CBT were once the exclusive domain of the professional therapist, but no longer. New insights into human behaviour have helped remove the subject's mystique, making the activity more client-focused and therefore more approachable as a topic of training. With the courses, techniques and support of the Institute's tutors, counselling skills or CBT skills can be acquired by anyone ready and willing to learn.
The Background of Current Students
We currently have students from: nursing, teaching, social work, voluntary sector, clergy and pastoral, human resources, prison services, probationary services, police officers … as well as people simply looking to make a career change or extend their current qualifications.

The Institute of Counselling
The Institute of Counselling has over 25 years of experience in offering education and training courses in counselling theory and practice. More recently our programme has been expanded to include Cognitive Behavioural Therapy at both Certificate and Diploma Level.
We have current students from the NHS, Teaching, Human Resources, Social Work, Voluntary Sector and other caring professions from all over the world with successful students now numbering over 26,000.
Additionally we can work with organisations in customising training and education to meet specific needs e.g. Helping HR functions manage the growing problems of Attendance Management using Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. We also offer Coaching, Mentoring and other helping intervention courses.
Depending on needs we offer on-line courses supporting Continuous Professional Development as well as University accredited modules making up the Certificates and Diplomas awarded by the Institute. They cover the spectrum of counselling knowledge and skills from foundation level to more specific topics such as grief and bereavement, couples and families and crisis and trauma.
"The course has helped me develop my counselling skills. It has added a completely new dimension to my work and my confidence has grown leaps and bounds."
