The Counselling department at Nescot College has seen enormous growth in recent years as the benefits of self development and mental strength gain more currency in society.
Our team at Nescot are dedicated to taking you through rigorous professional training with the view to producing skilled competent practitioners, equipped with the knowledge and empathy to make a real difference to your clients.
All of your tutors here are experienced, practising
counsellors with various specialties and areas of excellence. We are
also one of the only departments to offer specialised training in the
latest psychodynamic counselling techniques.
We believe in supporting your learning by being available to answer queries, questions and difficulties promptly and you will have frequent, individual attention from your tutor, including before and after tutoring sessions when you are seeing clients, as well as email and telephone access.
There will be opportunities for training/clinical placements within approved voluntary agencies from year 1 but a lot of support is provided to help students to secure a clinical placement. Teaching is structured around a whole day, and supervision group sizes are kept small at a maximum of 4 as per the BACP’s Ethical Framework for the Counselling professions.
Counselling is an absorbing and engaging profession
which has gained in popularity in recent years. Opportunities for
skilled counsellors are numerous and varied and challenging.
Your training at Nescot is designed to equip you to meet those challenges and to become a highly skilled practitioner, fully conversant with the latest thinking in the field.
