Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy
Welcome to the Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, working with Children, Young People and Adults.
S.M.I.L.E. Counselling & Training have set this Diploma with the aim to provide a solid foundation in the integrative approach to counselling practice. The course is based upon the Humanistic, Person-Centred modality, recognising the individual strengths and qualities of the therapeutic agreement.
This course is theoretically informed by Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural theories. There is an emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, self-awareness, empowerment of clients, and awareness of social and cultural contexts as being at the core of therapeutic change. The final module focuses on the competences of therapeutic practice, working with children and young people. The course is anticipated to be credit rated at SCQF level 10/11.
400 taught hours
