About The Institute


In operation since 1998, the Institute serves the needs of people who are or who want to become counsellors.

The Institute’s Tutors are full-time counsellors, who bring their on-the-job experience to the course. You'll get advice directly from active practitioners - not armchair theorists.

The Institute is wholly financed by its members, from its courses and subscriptions, from lectures and published material. It brings together all kinds of counsellors, novices and long-standing experts alike.


We're accredited by the Open and Distance Learning Quality Council (ODLQC).

Set up by the government in 1968, the ODLQC is one of the prime accreditation bodies for distance learning courses.

To achieve accreditation, we undergo a rigorous and continuous assessment, by independent experts, of all aspects of our work, including administration, learner support, educational materials, and publicity. And because we're regularly inspected, we have to we have to work hard to maintain quality to keep that accreditation.

We're also accredited by the Better Business Bureau.
