Course Description

Relationship and Couples Counselling Diploma - Level 3 NCFE

There has been a sharp increase of interest in couples counselling over the past 20 years, with a large amount of high profile celebrities seeking counselling to repair broken Hollywood marriages. The art of couples counselling encourages partners to embark on a journey to rebuild broken relationships and tackle issues that have arose within the relationship that are causing friction and unhappiness. 

There are a number of very real issues that can have negative effects on a couple, and it is the job of a counsellor to get to the root of the problems using a number of psychotherapeutic techniques to repair and resolve, while ensuring personal development for the individual members of the partnership. Stress, adultery and depression are all aspects that create problems in relationships.

This comprehensive, 10 module course, will give you the knowledge to feel completely confident in providing an excellent counselling service. The course focus is around psychodynamic, cognitive and person-centred approaches which develops students’ knowledge. These approaches are extremely advanced psychological techniques and theories and will provide the learner with advanced counselling skills. 

In specialist counselling fields, advanced skills are essential in determining client needs as well as understanding the origins of the emotions and which possible psychological factors are affecting these emotions. This course specialises in couples and relationships, and upon completion the learner will have a good understanding of this niche area of counselling.
