Entry Requirements for Diploma /BA in PC Counselling

Metanoia’s counselling courses do not require any specific academic or training qualifications. Applicants need to show that they are interested in learning more about counselling and in developing the personal and professional qualities involved in the practice of counselling or counselling skills. These include the ability to develop a high level of empathy with the client, tolerance of different value systems, a willingness and ability to cope with deep feelings and the capacity for self-awareness and self-reflection. All applicants are required to attend an introductory workshop and an assessment interview.

Prospective students need to consider whether to apply for the Diploma, the BA (Hons) or the MSc in Psychotherapy. Please note that the BA course is validated by Middlesex University and the Diploma is BACP validated. Applicants who wish to take the degree will need to satisfactorily evidence that they will be able to cope with the academic requirements. This may be done in two ways; evidence of previous academic training to this level or above can be submitted to your Primary Tutor at the beginning of the first year or BA registration can be made following successful submission of the first assignment at Unit 5 of Year 1. Applicants wishing to take the MSc Psychotherapy will need to attend the relevant orientation and interview day.
