Reach Your Potential

The best counselling training happens in a practice-based environment with trainers who counsel as much as they teach.  Our training takes place in the context of a busy city centre counselling practice which keeps students and teachers linked with the real world, all year around. We don’t do ivory towers or close half the year.

We always get to know our students, and they us, as we work mostly in circles with highly skilled facilitation. For good reason, we are the longest IACP accredited course provider in the country. IACP accredit our diploma and degree and Coventry University accredit our top-up Degree programme. (Recently, the Complete University Guide put Coventry University “Top New University” in the UK )   Experiential learning is key to our training. Just like our oak tree, with the right support, growth just happens!
