Integrated Professional Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling Dip PC
In 12 years of offering counselling training, we know that potential counsellors and therapists can be confused by the wide variety of approaches to choose from. Our solution is to offer an integrated approach called psychotherapeutic counselling.
At Chrysalis, we take the best elements of well- known counselling and psychotherapy models and put them together in a unique, tried and tested approach, which concentrates on treating all the problems most commonly seen by professional counsellors and therapists - while developing your own self-knowledge and understanding.
The result - our Integrated Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling - will teach you the models, skills and techniques necessary for personal awareness and for the professional treatment of clients.
You'll learn how to deal with the past, present and future; how to work with stress and anxiety; self- defeating behaviours; relationships; loss & bereavement; anger & frustration; personal growth, creativity and development.
We use our own unique model which uses different types of therapy when appropriate for different clients and issues. While we understand the need to listen and to respect and understand the client, Chrysalis® believes that people who come to therapists require concrete help and appropriate solutions. Our approach allows for therapists and counsellors to take an active role in assisting the client heal and reach their full potential.
The Chrysalis® Integrated Diploma is our two year, entry-price course and covers everything necessary for successful private professional practice. The course extends into our 3 year Advanced Diploma (our most popular course) which allows you to work with deeper issues. The Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling is recognised by the National Counselling Society and lead to professional membership (“MNCS”) on completion. Approved by the Open University. Graduates are entitled to practice under the title Chrysalis Therapist® as well.
Direct Entry to the Integrated Diploma Year 2 is available at our discretion to professionally accredited hypnotherapists or students with counselling skills qualifications. Please indicate on your Application Form to be considered for this.
