Welcome to our website. If you are a counsellor or psychotherapist looking to add online counseling skills to your service, you’ve reached the right place.

Our training is designed for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists who are planning to add online counselling to their practice. The training is conducted entirely online so it doesn’t matter where you live. If you have a reliable computer and internet connection, you can join one of our online student groups and learn via email and attend live discussion meetings via our campus website. Our Certificate and Diploma Courses are validated by CPCAB, the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awards Body.
