This Diploma provides

opportunities for critical self-reflection and enables learners to work towards producing a research proposal. The proposal will cover the field of counselling research and the methodological approaches to enquiry to assess and evaluate the practice of counselling and/or a topic relevant to the field. 


Learners will embark on practice working within an ethical framework and develop an understanding of the need for and value of supervision in counselling practice. Learners must also undertake research and develop a business plan to establish, develop, and maintain a private counselling practice.

This qualification is aimed at learners whose qualification goal is to achieve professional status in counselling.

 1. A level 4 Diploma in Counselling was taught through an accredited training provider, i.e., a private training provider, college, or university.
