Becoming a Counsellor

Why train with us? Because the best path to becoming a counsellor is in a practice-based environment, where trainers counsel as much as they teach and where theory, research and practice coincide.  As a result, our training takes place in the context of a busy city centre counselling practice linking us always to the real world. You see, we do self development and relationship, not ivory towers or wishful thinking.

Our training is creative and experiential with highly skilled facilitation. For good reason, we are the longest IACP accredited course provider in the country. They accredit our honours science degree which is validated by Coventry University .

Recently, the Complete University Guide put Coventry University “Top New University” in the UK. Check out our student experiences learn about what we do and ask questions .


Thank you to everybody who supported our fundraising quiz in aid of Cork Counselling Services on 10th May in the The Hawthorn Bar. We want to thank all those who took part and those who sponsored the generous prizes. We raised over €1500 thanks to your generosity. We hope to do it all again next year so keep up the study!

A hearty congratulations to all of our 2019 Degree and Diploma Graduates who finished their IACP and/or Coventry University accredited courses.
