“If it wasn’t for the Institute of Counselling there is no way that I would be where I am today. I want to express my deepest, sincerest and upmost gratitude and thanks to everyone. I am really looking forward to continuing and constant development with my counselling skills at the Institute and will start my Diploma in Counselling in the next few weeks.”

“I enjoyed the course very much and the speedy return of assignments was excellent. I learned a lot about CBT, how it works and dealt with some of the misconceptions too. I also learned a lot about myself.”

“The Diploma in CBT is quite an exceptional course. Though it appears simple its use is highly beneficial to my-self and my patients. It enhances my practice. My tutor was always there for me and gave me honest feedback.”

“Initially I was a bit worried about doing distance learning, and whether I would have the discipline to complete it. At the beginning there was a bit of a hiccup with this, but when I progressed to the Diploma I became more focused. It has helped me to make decisions about further training in aspects of counselling and psychotherapy.”
