Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling


The next intake for the Diploma will be in September 2021 – This Course is now Full 

Reflecting changes and developments in the counselling and psychotherapy world, we have decided to change the structure of the Diploma for following cohorts. From January 2022 the Diploma will run over three years, with the first year being a Certificate in Counselling – this will be the access route to the full Diploma. The first year will run over 30 Thursday evenings from 6-9pm and will be available to students who may not wish to continue on to the Diploma, as well as those who do. The following 2 years will be on Mondays from 1-8pm.
