Our Ethos

Training to become a counsellor is a fascinating journey to take.  At Heartwood you will be invited to explore aspects of yourself, your relationships and your history.

We are all unique individuals and at Heartwood, we believe in keeping an open mind and an acceptance of all that you bring.

You will never be 'pushed' to go deeper than feels comfortable for you and we will support you at each new junction on your journey.

It is important that you feel comfortable and accepted and free to explore yourself and the world of counselling without judgements.  Our students tell us they have life-changing moments whilst with us and we are honoured by the depth and openness which our students choose to share with us and each other.

We believe that this training does much more than prepare you for a professional career in counselling, we truly believe that this training helps you to fully become the person you are.

We believe that it is important to create a learning environment in which the student feels safe to explore, be creative and grow.

All our courses are run by professionals in the field of counselling and psychotherapy and are designed to incorporate all new government legislation and requirements.
