Counselling Training


Basingstoke Counselling Service, based in Hampshire, is a busy, vibrant counselling and training organisation at the heart of the community. We have over 30 years’ experience in providing highly respected, comprehensive counselling training in the psychodynamic discipline. Our courses are widely recognised and held in high regard within the counselling profession.

The counselling training we provide ranges from a 10-week Introduction to Counselling Course (Level 1) to a BACP Accredited Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling (Levels 4 and 5). These courses can be taken individually and many do so to enhance their communication skill set within their current profession. However, when taken together, they form a cohesive and supportive training journey to becoming a qualified professional counsellor.
