Fast Track Foundation in Counselling and Psychotherapy 

Start dates 

Fast-track Foundation: February 2023, 8 weekends, Sat & Sunday 10am-6pm. 

Venue: The Minster Centre 

The course provides a comprehensive and critical introduction to the field of psychotherapy and counselling from an integrative viewpoint. It enables students to develop a basic grasp of the main strands of psychotherapy and counselling theory and acquire basic counselling and psychotherapeutic skills. During the course students will increase their own self-awareness, their awareness of others and their capacity to relate and interact with others. 

The course can be taken as a stand-alone or as preparation for training to be a counsellor or psychotherapist. About a third to a half of the students who successfully complete this course continue to join the first year of the Minster Centre professional training courses, others continue to train elsewhere or pursue training in related areas. 

The Minster Centre currently offers two formats for a Foundation course; a year-long course or a Fast Track course delivered over 8 weekends. Both courses cover the same basic material and offer similar numbers of hours of training. 

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.
