This professional level course is designed either for students wanting to prepare for a career in counselling/psychotherapy or for professionals already working in the human services field wanting to deepen their understanding and skills. The Process Oriented approach we emphasise, allows practitioners to constantly be in contact with their own passion whilst working with others, and following the unique pathway as indicated by each individual.
We aim to teach our students an appreciation for the human psyche and its’ interweaving with the world around it; the excitement in identifying the pathway to connect and communicate with all kinds of people; as well as the ability to marvel over each individuals’ unique solutions.
