About the course
This is a two year Diploma in Integrative Counselling based on CPCAB’s model of practitioner development and therapeutic change, with the Integrative ‘five relational model’ (Petruska Clarkson) as the integrating theoretical framework. You will explore the five relations spanning the working alliance, the transference relationship, the reparative and developmental relationship, the person to person or real relationship and the transpersonal.
You will develop proficiency as a Therapeutic Counsellor at a counselling placement agency or workplace, under clinical supervision, where you are required to attain 100 supervised client hours.
A minimum of 30 hours of personal counselling (Integrative) is required throughout the two years of the course.
Clarkson’s integrative relational model forms the basis, with a modulated structure integrating Psychodynamic, Humanistic and Intercultural approaches. Later in year two, you will also be introduced to a range of short term and solution focused therapies – Motivational Interviewing, NLP and CBT.
Interspersed throughout the course are major subject and issue specific topics which will be covered including; identity, difference and diversity; working with mental health; depression & anxiety related conditions; loss and grieving; addictions; co-dependency and eating disorders.
