Diploma in Integrative Counselling

Start date: Tuesday 20th September 2023, Tuesdays 12pm - 8pm

Venue: The Minster Centre 

Successful completion of the Diploma in Integrative Counselling qualifies students to practice as an Integrative counsellor, supports BACP Registered Membership and is the first step to obtaining BACP accreditation. If students successfully complete the first two years of training they can also apply to continue to do the MA/Advanced Diploma. 

The course provides for an intensive development of counselling skills and a deeper understanding of the theoretical frameworks and concepts underpinning different counselling approaches, leading to an integration of these into sound counselling practice. The Integrative approach encourages people to find their own voice and identity as counsellors. The Minster Centre has a long tradition of social commitment and our training syllabus reflects this, with students encouraged to reflect on issues of diversity and society as part of their work. 

The course will cover humanistic, existential, psychodynamic and body work approaches to counselling. Over three years students mix teaching, experiential learning, group discussion, practical application and microskills exercises with relevant theory. As well as being grounded in the traditional approaches to psychotherapy and counselling, our tutors also have experience and expertise in contemporary understandings, such as neurobiology, relational and embodied work. 

Fees listed are for courses starting September 2021 and are indicative only. Fees may be subject to increase for 2022-23. This will be confirmed prior to interviews being organised. If you wish to continue your studies and complete our Advanced Diploma/MA in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy there will be different study and fee options for Year 3. Please see our website for full details.
