Level 4 Diploma in Counselling - More info

This is a two year Level 4 Diploma course running one day a fortnight and will qualify you to work as a professional counsellor.

The Level 4 Diploma is an Integrative Approach and draws from the traditions of Gestalt, Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, and Person Centred; which when combined create an holistic perspective which will allow you to successfully counsel clients experiencing a range of issues affecting their mind, body, spirit and emotions.

This is Heartwood's most popular course and we have been successfully running this course for over a decade with a much higher than average rate of students qualifying. Our unique style of teaching allows for each student to develop at their own rate with gentle support from our tutors and student mentor. 

At Heartwood we aim to draw on your own desires and passion for the profession and encourage you to develop your own personal approach to the counselling work you do. We believe that our role is to give you the skills, knowledge and confidence to enable you to develop into the best counsellor you can be.

The training will teach you skills, and theories in a creative and fun environment and provide you with many opportunities to develop yourself personally with a strong sense of belief in who you are and what you can offer your clients.

You may find other providers offering this type of training but we believe that no other course will give you the same mixture of compassionate support and professional accredited training which we offer. We are right beside you 100% of the way which is why we have such a high success rate.
Training starts in September, and courses are always oversubscribed. It is a really good idea to register your interest as early as possible to avoid disappointment (fill in the contact form and book a taster day or an interview).
We run two daytime courses from 9.30am - 5pm; one course will run on Wednesdays and the other will run on Thursdays.
A weekend option starts each spring.
