Counselling at Nescot


Psychodynamic counselling is based on the belief that the past influences the present in ways that we are not always aware of. A psychodynamic counsellor will strive to help clients recognise the possible source of some of their issues e.g. unhelpful relationship patterns. Another important aspect of psychodynamic work is the way that various feelings, such as anxiety, are being managed.

This two-year diploma qualifies you to practice in a public practice and you will also be equipped to open your own private practice.

If your paid or voluntary role involves counselling people and you want to develop your competence or progress to becoming a professional counsellor, this course is designed to meet your personal and professional needs.


The course will provide you with the necessary training in skills and theory to meet the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy requirements in those areas to accredit individual counsellors. It would then be your responsibility to seek individual accreditation which entails further supervised practice and completion of the necessary written evidence.

The Diploma course is psychodynamic in orientation with some consideration of the humanistic approach. To qualify you must have already completed a Level 3 Counselling course.
