“I would highly recommend it. The distance learning aspect of it is brilliant. There are no deadlines which allow you to leave more time between modules to learn more before attempting them. I find the content easy to read.”
Paula, Cheshire, UK
The support system is great. Even if it's been a while between my submitting assignments, I still receive regular emails, articles etc. which reminds me I'm not alone and spurs me on to keep going.
Deborah, Kent, UK
Home study suits my lifestyle, and this is a particularly good course.
Carol, Essex, UK

Diploma in Counselling Course

Why Choose Our Counselling Course?

Why Choose Us?

 

Other Organisations

Accredited by ABC as equivalent to Level 4 of the National Qualification Framework (NQF).   Some courses are not properly accredited. Others offer a Level 2 or 3.

Unlimited time to complete your course – because sometimes life gets in the way.   Many organisations require you to complete the course in a year.

60-day refund period. Take your time to reflect on whether you're happy with the course.   Some organisations only give you 7 days to return your course if you're not happy with it.

Additional end-of-course refund. If you don’t earn at least the cost of the course within 90 days of completing it, after doing some marketing, we’ll refund your course fees. Conditions apply   As far as we know, no one else offers this.

1:1 tutor support. All our tutors are practising counsellors, so you get real-world answers.   Some organisations get in-house people to mark the assignment using simple tick-boxes. So you never discover the deep-down insiders' information.

Printed materials delivered to your door. We provide both printed and multi-media materials. Plus you have full access to an online edition. It’s easier to study that way.   Some courses are online-only. That's OK if you are happy to study online. But two-thirds of our learners prefer printed course materials.

Easy to grasp. We provide a carefully graduated learning experience.   Some companies make their first assignment hard, so many students give up straightaway.

Interesting course material. Our course is fun to do.   Others provide a dry, academic course that is boring to read and time consuming. It’s harder to do a course if the material is dull.

NUS Extra Card. Get an NUS Extra card which gives you discounts at shops, cinemas and other places (£10 fee).   Many home-study organisations don't provide an NUS Extra Card.

All inclusive package. There are no hidden fees. You don't need any extras (though we include an optional reading list). And delivery by courier is included in the price.   Check that other organisations won't charge you extra for tutoring or other costs.

Includes detailed information on how to run a counselling business.   Many organisations don't think about including this very important information.

You can contact other learners, so you can learn from them and share experiences.   Some organisations have no system for letting you make contact, so you're isolated.

You get a free business mentor for 90 days after completing the course. Your mentor will help you to set up your business.   As far as we know, no one else offer this.

You receive regular Progress Reports and reminders, tailored to your individual progress. They will help you stay on track.
  You're unlikely to get this from other organisations.

And finally, you get all the advantages of home study: no classroom attendance, learn from home, study at your own pace, no previous knowledge required.
