Counsellors play a vital role in the health and wellbeing of our society today. By encouraging people to talk about their feelings, behaviours and choices a counsellor can influence a positive change in a person’s life as they overcome daily challenges or periods of heightened anxieties and distress.
Counsellors have similar attributes, they are dedicated, caring and compassionate, respect the views and beliefs of others and are looking to make a difference. Are you? Kirklees College is an ABC Awards Showcase Centre for counselling courses. We deliver courses at all levels, taught by fully qualified and practicing counsellors. You will develop your understanding of the role of a counsellor and the skills required to practice.

Studied Level 4 Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling
I found my time at Kirklees College enjoyable, supportive and life-changing. The college was easily accessible with good teaching facilities at the new Pioneer Higher Skills Centre. It gave me the opportunity to work with some great people, some of whom are now friends for life, whilst studying a fantastic course.
