This qualification is intended for candidates who want to train to become a counsellor working in a counselling service agency. Successful completion of this course means that the trainees will be able to provide a therapeutic counselling service within the context of an agency's service framework.


Theoretical Model:  

This is an Integrative Course and as such will look at a number of Theoretical Models.  Students will be encouraged to select those models that they would like to integrate into there own Integrative Model. 


Placements:   

There is a minimum requirement of 100 hours formally-contracted counselling (one-to-one) with at least 5 different clients in an agency setting.

Cancellations and non-attends do not count towards this total.  Students will be expected to research and arrange their own placements.  The centre will give guidance on what constitutes an acceptable placement (see also CPCAB guide on Guide to Workplace Experience). In addition to the guidance given by the Centre and CPCAB, students might find the internet a good source of information on finding placements, there are resources at the centre available for this purpose.

Supervision:  

Students are required to have clinical supervision for their agency client work.  CPCAB recommends that the candidate’s agency provides appropriate clinical supervision to meet BACP supervision guidelines for trainees – currently a minimum of 1½ hours individual supervision per month (or the equivalent if in group supervision) or 1 hour of supervision for every 8 hours of client work. In addition, candidates will have 30-50 hours group training supervision as part of the course. 


Personal Therapy

There is a minimum of 20 hours personal therapy during the life of the course, in certain circumstances it might be advisable for this to be extended further depending on the individual circumstances of the student.  This aspect will be fully discussed with students during one to one meetings with tutors as the course progresses.
