Part-time Counselling

It takes a special kind of person to pursue a career as a counsellor; you need to be a great listener and communicator; be empathetic to people’s feelings; have high-levels of compassion, tact, and understanding; and want to make a positive difference to the lives of others. If you have these traits, counselling can be a hugelyrewarding, varied, and fascinating vocation.

Many people find it helpful, comforting, and empowering to seek the support of a counsellor at some point in their lives. Maybe they’re looking to improve their mental wellbeing, or simply want to make a positive change to their lifestyle. Here at Petroc, we have a range of part-time counselling courses that can help you to develop the understanding, knowledge, and skills you need in order to provide support to these individuals, and help them talk about their feelings.
With part-time courses available from Level 2 Awards and Certificates, right the way up to Level 4 Diplomas; we can even offer you a study pathway to Higher Education and, ultimately, become a qualified counsellor.

All of our counselling courses are fully-accredited by the CPCAB (Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body); the only awarding body in Europe to specialise in the field of counselling.

Whether you’re looking to upskill for your current role, continue your professional development, increase your chances for employment or promotion, completely change career direction, or just want to be able to positively impact the lives of your friends and family - we’re here to help you go further in life.
