I feel I am where I need to be as a qualified counsellor: knowledge, skills, ethic, self-awareness – Student Level 4

Level 4 Student

This course offers an opportunity to work effectively with trauma and gain a better understanding of our clients', and our own responses and experience. The course is stretching but I wouldn't have missed it for anything. Both I, and my work with clients have benefitted enormously. Thank you.

Level 6 Student

The Level 4 Diploma course at Willows has allowed me to continue my counselling journey with confidence and a strong belief that I have gained firm foundations with which to work with a variety of clients. I experienced the content of the course as wide ranging and thorough. My learning was supported my confident and competent tutors, and I have formed relationship with my peers which I believe will last a lifetime.

Student

The content of the course was both fascinating and stretching (in equal measures sometimes!)
