Are you considering a career change? Looking for a fulfilling role which can also bring flexibility to your work life?
Have you ever thought about training to become a Counsellor or Psychotherapist?
If you have an interest in mental health, would like to work in a meaningful way to create positive change and possess skills such as being a good listener and the capacity to be self-reflective, then training to become a Counsellor or Psychotherapist could be the right pathway for you.
The Minster Centre has been training students to become counsellors and psychotherapists for over 40 years. We run Introduction to Counselling ‘taster’ courses throughout the year which can help you explore if this could be the right route for you. We also offer Foundation and Fast Track Foundation courses which prepare candidates for our main training programmes – the Diploma in Integrative Counselling and the MA/Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy.
We pride ourselves on offering small study groups, personal attention and a friendly, supportive learning environment which encourages personal development. Our training programme is accredited by the main professional bodies and our MA is quality assured by Middlesex University.
Training is a personal journey where you will learn a lot about yourself and others, and as such it can take four to five years to complete. Prices range from £310 for the Introduction to Counselling course, £2,645 for the Foundation course, £5610 for the first year of the Diploma in Integrative Counselling and £5610 for the first year of the MA/Advanced Diploma in Integrative Counselling (please see our website for a full breakdown of Fees).
Our graduates can be found working in private practice or go on to work in the NHS; in schools, colleges and universities; organisations such as MIND and various charitable foundations; and as tutors in other training organisations. Being a counsellor or psychotherapist can also turn into a portfolio career, with many people who run their own practices also tutoring or working part time elsewhere.
To find out more, come along to one of our regular free Open Days or Open Evenings where you can meet a tutor and current student and hear more about the various options to train. Visit our website now to book your place: www.minstercentre.ac.uk.
“The structure was excellent, boundaried, clear and always seemed to get consolidated and with a constant view on integration. Excellent, I’d recommend this to anyone.”
“The course fully met my expectations. I learn best from a mixture of theory, practice and experiential, which I felt the course gave in a balanced way.”
