Diploma in Child and Adolescent Counselling

This is a new and innovative two year part time Diploma in Transpersonal Child and Adolescent Counselling which offers a unique transpersonal, integrative approach to working with children and young people. The course aims to promote high professional standards, sound ethical practice, the appreciation of difference and sensitivity to others. Emphasis is placed on the therapeutic relationship and the qualities of presence, empathy and attunement. We aim to develop a rich, supportive learning environment that values individual uniqueness. The qualities and gifts of an individual’s deeper nature are valued and nurtured. Individual ideals and differences are respected and bring enrichment to the learning process. Our heart-centred approach values kindness, consideration, respect and tolerance. This course is suitable for those applicants who wish to work towards qualification and registration as a child and adolescent counsellor.
