Once your Core Counselling Training is complete, you may find yourself wanting to learn more about the counselling field. You may be thinking of specialising in a specific area of counselling. Maybe you have found a topic within the field that you would like to study more or spend some time conducting your own research on. It might interest you to continue your counselling studies to build up Guided Learning Hours to reach a higher level of membership with your chosen professional register, such as the National Counselling and Psychotherapy Society.

Chrysalis Courses offers Ofqual regulated Level 5 and Level 6 diploma courses and Level 5 Certificate short courses that can extend your knowledge and help you to develop further counselling skills, as well as helping you gain more Guided Learning Hours towards a higher level of membership with your chosen professional register.
