Why Study Counselling?

There are several reasons why someone might choose to complete a counselling programme. As well as offering a range of full and part-time courses aimed at those seeking to pursue a career in counselling, we also provide courses that allow people to explore counselling as an interest or for their own personal development. Below are some of the reasons why people choose to study counselling and psychotherapy courses at ICHAS.

Transferrable Skills

Courses in Counselling and Psychotherapy teach participants many useful skills such as active listening, empathy and self-awareness that can be of benefit to people in any career, not just those who want to be professional Counsellors. These skills will benefit anyone who is employed in a sector where they have to deal with members of the public, or demonstrate good communication skills.

Personal Development

Many people simply have an interest in counselling and want to learn more about it. Perhaps they want to develop skills that will benefit them in everyday life, or simply because they’ve always been interested in the area.

A Specialised Career

Many people undertake counselling courses to develop the specialised skills needed to become professional counsellors. Others undertake higher-level counselling courses to enhance or develop skills for the workplace.

Courses in Counselling & Psychotherapy at ICHAS

These are just some reasons why people undertake counselling courses. ICHAS offers courses  for all skill levels – the Certificate in Counselling Skills & Psychotherapeutic Practice is a excellent introduction to counselling skills for everyday life and work. We also offer several degree level counselling courses in specialised areas such as youth studies and addiction studies for people interested in developing skills in these specialised areas. Finally, there’s a comprehensive suite of Master’s counselling courses for those interested in building on existing qualifications & skills for career enhancement reasons.
