Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling (BACP Accredited)
This two year part-time course is designed for those who want to train to practice as a psychodynamic counsellor. Each year is divided into three terms. Our Diploma includes weekly supervision and the clinical placement to fulfill the client work component. Our costs cover supervision, clinical placement and training seminars.
The Autumn 2021 Diploma will take place on a Tuesday.
In order to complete the Diploma, trainee counsellors must acquire 150 hours of clinical practice. For this reason we facilitate a third year primarily for clinical practice which will include additional training delivered as Saturday workshops. During this third year trainees continue to see clients and attend supervision. Costs for this third year vary for each cohort of trainees and will be discussed during the final term of the second year.
In the first year, the training day consists of two seminars (2 hours duration), and an experiential group of 1.5 hours.
In the second year the day comprises three seminars and an experiential group.
Each seminar leader has a personal style and special skills that influence the focus and direction of the seminars.
The curriculum has a ‘spiral’ shape in that the concepts introduced, explored and re-visited in greater depth later on in the course.
Please note: the experiential group work is an essential component of the psychodynamic training we provide. It is therefore a requirement that applicants have completed a Certificate in Counselling Skills with an experiential group work component.
