Our course levels

Our courses provide a ladder of training from introductory Certificate courses to Diploma level and Postgraduate/MA qualifications in psychodynamic psychotherapy. We also run a wide-ranging programme of specialist CPD courses for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists.

Foundation courses

For almost 50 years WPF Therapy has been offering people the opportunity to develop their interpersonal skills by participating in one of our Foundation courses. The different modes aim to provide the same content but in different formats, in order to suit the requirements of a wide range of people. No prior training or qualification is required. If you already have some basic skills and want to develop them further, we recommend our Diploma in Counselling Skills (Access course).

To increase our flexibility of access we have introduced an April intake for the Foundation Certificate in Counselling Skills. This will run on Monday evenings from April 2018 to February 2019.

Want to know more? Come to our Open Evening on 16th February 2018.

‘The course is well run and structured. I have been given a good introduction to counselling and psychotherapy and learnt an awful lot about myself.’  Foundation Certificate student, 2017

‘I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at WPF and will come away from the course feeling more self-aware and more confident in pursuing a career in psychotherapy.’  Foundation Certificate student, 2017
