Tavistock Relationships' Foundation Certificate in Couple Counselling and Psychotherapy course is the next step towards a career in psychotherapy and couple counselling. In this certificate level course students develop counselling skills and gain a deeper understanding of psychodynamic and psychoanalytic theories and concepts with a particular focus on the couple relationship.
The course is specifically designed to provide participants with the opportunity of learning more about couple work, the special character of the marital/couple fit and the theory underpinning this approach. In addition, the training can improve personal and professional relationships through developing greater self-awareness and an enhanced understanding of the dynamics inherent in any family or social group.
By the end of the course, students will have formed a sufficiently substantive understanding of working therapeutically with couples; and an understanding of the psychoanalytic theory that underpins this practice to enable them to decide whether this is an area they wish to build a new career in. From here students can apply for a place on one of our clinical training programmes..
How to apply
There is an application fee of £50 (non-refundable) for applicants.
Please note that Hallam House is a period property, and that due to the size of the lift shaft, the lift that is being installed is not DDA compliant and does not meet the minimum requirements for wheelchair access. Once the lift has been installed early next year we will know whether it will be possible to accommodate very slim wheelchairs. Unfortunately this means that our training events and courses at Hallam House are not currently accessible for wheelchair users.
Please note that January 2020 course has started, and applications are only being accepted for the April 2020 course.
We request that all applications are completed in an electronic word processing document. Please DO NOT handwrite your submission.
