“I had researched a lot of counselling courses in the past, but when I read the course content and straight-forward approach the Blackford Centre take, I knew it was the one for me. The course can take anywhere up to two years but I fast-tracked it to gain my qualification earlier. I opted to pay in instalments and the literature arrived really quickly via courier.
I found the staff at The Blackford Centre very helpful, accommodating and friendly, answering my queries swiftly and comprehensively. I had complete confidence in them.
My Tutor was Nik Ethridge who I found extremely supportive. He marked my Assignments in record speed, often the same day, which was a huge benefit as they recommend you do not move onto the next Module before you get your grade and feedback. I can honestly say the feedback each time was extremely beneficial, often resulting in me having that ‘penny dropping’ moment when he explained something I had overlooked or misinterpreted. His constructive comments helped me move onto the next Module with ease, and were also enlightening when I read them back after completing the course.
At one point Nik suggested a particular approach in bereavement counselling which I felt at the time was not terribly beneficial for me or the client, but since then I have used this technique and it worked. Again, a penny dropping moment!
Without thinking, I find I am using different techniques myself in my day-to-day life too – CBT therapy, turning negative thoughts into positive ones, really can help when you’re having a bad day.
I cannot start my business officially until my name changes when I get married in a few weeks, but have all my marketing material ie business cards, flyers, posters, letters etc ready in the study for that time. We cover step-by-step marketing in one of the Modules, so you know exactly where and how to start your business when you qualify.”
