Our course levels

Our courses provide a ladder of training from Foundation Certificate courses to Diploma level and  Clinical Qualification in Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. We also run a wide-ranging programme of specialist CPD courses for qualified counsellors and psychotherapists. These include a Post-Qualifying Certificate in Supervision and a Certificate in Clinical Assessment Skills.  WPF Therapy uses multi-channel delivery and it may be that some sessions will be delivered remotely.

Foundation courses

As we are coming out of the pandemic is it time to think about the changes that you are hoping to make for your life?  Many of us have struggled with the last 2 years and working and socialising online may have left us feeling disconnected.  WPF Therapy Foundation Certificate in Counselling Skills can be the first step to a new career as a psychotherapist, but for those of us exhausted from the last year, it can also be an opportunity to connect once more with ourselves and others, have deeper, more meaningful conversations, and get to know ourselves in a new way.

Places available for July 2022.  This course (Mode 4) is a hybrid intensive course and takes place online on Thursday evenings (6.15pm-9.40pm) and includes four Saturdays (10.00am to 4.00pm) that take place in the WPF Therapy building.

To provide flexibility of access we offer four starting points for the popular Foundation Certificate in Counselling Skills. Students can begin in January, April, July or October of each year. Each start has a different study schedule so that students can choose the one that fits best with their existing commitments.

Want to know more?  Register to attend our next free Open Event on Wednesday 25th May 2022. Please note that we offer sessions tailored to those looking to make their first step and for those who have already undertaken a foundation level course and are looking for a professional qualification training. Choose the session that will best suit your needs. For those looking at the foundation courses the next open event will run from 7pm – 9pm. For those ready for the Clinical Qualification the next open event will run from 6pm – 8pm.

Our next session for those wanting an in-depth exploration of the content and requirements for foundation level courses, our Introduction to Counselling and Psychotherapy: WPF Therapy A Taste of Training, takes place on 11th & 18th June 2022.

By the end of the course I had real clarity about what further training to become a psychodynamic counsellor involves both personally and professionally. This course is an excellent step to further training: it offered me a balance of personal challenge, adult learning and reflection with a stimulating introduction to psychodynamic theory”.   Foundation Certificate student 2019
