How do you cope with stress? If you generally cope well, you can probably help others to deal with it more effectively too.
Do you suffer from depression, or do you know somebody else who does? Do you have a friend or relative dealing with addiction or substance abuse? Is your friend recovering from a painful divorce or bereavement?
Many of these situations are very common, and lots of people struggle to cope with such difficult conditions. This is particularly true today, when people just don’t have the time for each other.
You can help them. Yes, I really do mean YOU!

Counselling and Psychotherapy

The most exciting thing is that if you have "been there, done it, worn the T-shirt and watched the DVD", you are probably the best person to "counsel" them! Counselling is, quite literally, a "talking" therapy. A large number of professional counsellors have themselves experienced and recovered from conditions like these. They have then gone on to gain professional qualifications in order to pass on their experience of coping and recovering. If you're also a good listener, then you could be ideally suited to this profession
Our Counselling and Psychotherapy Course is an inspired choice for those who want to help others suffering from stress, depression, addiction, eating disorders, divorce plus many more mentally challenging conditions.
How would you like to get some “hands on” experience while you’re learning? If you show promise through your assignments, you may also be offered volunteer opportunities while studying the course. Like the award of NCS student membership (see below), this is unique to students of MyDistance Learning College.
The course starts with the basic principles of Counseling and Psychotherapy and progresses through to counselling tools and techniques, which can be used to work with clients’ symptoms. It also gives you a good insight into a number of therapies currently in use, including Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behaviour Therapy (DBT), Person-Centred Therapy, Solution-Focused Therapy, and Gestalt Therapy, plus many others.
Students are then encouraged and guided to explore some of the many reasons for a person to seek therapy, including those mentioned above, and others such as schizophrenia and abuse. You will also learn about the ways in which therapy is delivered.
By the end of the course students will have developed a sound understanding of the key skills and tools needed to work with clients, and the importance of values and ethics. This course is 'quality checked' by the National Counselling Society which means that Students of this course can apply for student membership with the Society and upon successful completion of the course can apply for Associate level membership.
The course examines the various common conditions and situations dealt with by practising counsellors and psychotherapists, together with an in-depth exploration of the treatments, therapies and remedies available to them. Clicking on the “Snapshot” tab above reveals a full and detailed programme of the modules studied.
Perhaps surprisingly, the Counselling and Psychotherapy course has no entry requirements, other than personal motivation, desire and a genuine interest in the subject matter. As long as you also have a good general standard of education, you will gain immense benefit from it, even if you are only studying the course to help a friend or relative.
One of the key benefits of studying with My Distance Learning College is that, unlike other distance learning providers, we deliver the entire package of course materials in a single dispatch. This enables our students to get a real feel for the overall structure and content of the course, and chart their progress much more effectively. The modular method of delivery favoured by other providers fragments the learning process and actively prevents students from moving faster through sections they are more confident with, or taking more time over the deeper concepts that require more thought and comprehension.
Add this to all the other Incredible bonuses you get from MyDistance Learning College, such as your free business website, fully customisable marketing and stationery kit, free listing in our Professional Database (see full list at the bottom of the page) and you really can’t lose!
