Painted HandsPost Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Young People (11-18 years)

Following substantial student enquiries and requests, we are delighted to announce that we have now re-designed and re-launched our popular Post Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Adolescents course to address the new BACP Curriculum in Counselling Young People (11-18) and hence the BACP Competences for Humanistic Counselling with Young People (11–18 years).  

The new course is called the Post Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Young People (PQDCYP)


This 
re-designed course takes the best of the previous Post Qualifying Diploma in Counselling Children and Adolescents and has updated it substantially in line with the BACP Curriculum. This means that the certificate will now show how you meet the published BACP Competences for working with Young People.

There are 3 versions of this course, depending on your needs. The core attended training is exactly the same course, regardless of level - where they differ is in placement and work based learning requirements.
