Entry requirements:
Selection for the Diploma in Integrative Counselling Training is through successful completion of a Certificate Training (See requirements below). Students who have completed the Inter-Psyche Certificate in Counselling Skills will be asked to attend an internal individual interview. Students who have studied elsewhere will need to complete the downloadable application form and attend an individual interview. Applicants for the Diploma will need to meet all the requirements for admission to the Certificate plus:

• a certificate in counselling skills either Inter-Psyche or equivalent (minimum 70 hours)
• a practical knowledge of counselling skills
• formal or informal experience of using these skills
• willingness and ability to devote approximately 10 hours per week to private study.

Course Content:
The unique Inter-Psyche integrative model incorporates the Person Centred theory of Carl Rogers, the relational approach of Mearns and Cooper, the Psychodynamic approach and Beck's Cognitive model. We also give students a good working knowledge of phenomenological models such as the Existential Approach.

Skills & Personal Development
The course provides structured opportunities for students to practice counselling skills, gain competency in their judicious use and insight into the development of supportive client/counsellor relationships. There are frequent opportunities for observation, practice, feed back, discussion and review and students regularly video each other practising their skills. The course encourages participants to recognise, reflect on and reinforce their existing qualities, whilst at the same time becoming aware of areas of their lives which would benefit from further exploration. Opportunities for developing self-awareness during the course are:

• personal development groups, group supervision and community groups
• personal and professional learning journals
• personal therapy/counselling*
• informal and formal self, peer and tutor appraisals

* NB It is a course requirement that all students undertake at least 60 hours of personal therapy / counselling during the two years of the Diploma Course. This must be with a BACP or UKCP accredited therapist.

Opportunities for Counselling Practice
During their final year of training, students are required to complete a minimum of 100 hours of supervised counselling practice. Assistance with finding suitable placements will be given.
