About Chrysalis

Chrysalis was established in 1998 and we are now the UK’s market-leading trainer in counselling courses and talking therapies. We encourage our students to grow themselves through practical, enjoyable and satisfying courses – and on their journey, help others grow.

We feel our courses are unique in that we combine a creative, enjoyable and relaxed approach but with full accreditation from the relevant professional bodies. With you in mind, we designed our courses to be part-time so they fit around modern busy lifestyles and commitments to work and family and our support system will help ensure that you achieve your qualification. 

Chrysalis is set up as a not-for-profit company to help enhance the life-skills of its students. As we have no shareholders, any surplus income we generate is re-invested straight back into the courses we provide. We continually look to improve and expand our range of courses in order to offer more and more people, like you, the opportunity to enhance their potential.
