Access our distance learning courses directly from anywhere, anytime, and acquire industry-recognised Professional Qualifications essential for advancing in your career.

Specifically, explore the flexible and convenient Counselling Advanced (Level 4) course, an ideal way to gain a diploma qualification. Whether you aim for further education, improved job prospects, or expanded knowledge, this comprehensive course allows you to prepare thoroughly for exams or careers through home study. Plus, it's structured to be accessible and beneficial even if you have no prior knowledge in Counselling Advanced.

Counselling is a therapeutic process that has experienced a significant rise in demand. However, there are still notable shortages of counselors in some instances, particularly within services focused on the mental health of young people, which are lacking in various areas across the UK.

To excel as a counsellor, you must establish a solid foundation of counselling knowledge and theoretical comprehension. Additionally, a heightened level of self-awareness is crucial. This self-awareness involves understanding how your body language, words, and facial expressions impact your clients.

While prior knowledge is not a prerequisite for enrolling in this Level 4 Counselling Diploma, having completed the Level 3 Counselling Diploma can be advantageous.

Many of the fundamental counselling theories and therapies trace their origins to Germany and Austria. As a result, you'll encounter German language phrases and references to German and Austrian therapists throughout the course.

The Level 4 Counselling course is comprehensive, comprising 20 modules that require a minimum of 240 hours of study. It is highly recommended to fully utilize this time and explore additional texts and works by therapists recognized as leaders in this often intricate field.

Similar to other advanced counseling courses, this diploma delves into numerous theories and the practical aspects of counseling:

  • It explores the definition of counselling, qualification structures, and the path to becoming a registered counsellor. 
  • The course delves into various approaches, including psychoanalytical and psychodynamic perspectives.
  • It draws upon the insights of influential figures such as Freud and Jung to understand the counseling and therapy process.
  • Additionally, a module within the course addresses neuro-linguistic programming and cognitive behaviour therapy, emphasising that clients must adjust their self-talk to effect change.
  • In any counselling scenario, the ability to interpret body language and other non-verbal cues is essential for recognising clients' true emotions, as clients often convey their feelings through non-verbal cues that may contrast with their verbal expressions.
