Basingstoke Counselling Service is a busy, vibrant counselling and training organisation at the heart of the community. We have over 20 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 courses we provide range from a 10-week Introduction to Counselling to a Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling. 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 supported training journey to becoming a qualified counsellor.
