Welcome to the Institute of Counselling

We are the leading provider of online Counselling Courses and Training

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 counselling 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 cognitive behavioural therapy (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.
