Personal Counselling in Training


The CPCAB recommendation for personal counselling for Level 4 Diploma students is a minimum of 10 hours face to face personal therapy during the life of the course (to accommodate a range of theoretical approaches).

Dandelions own requirement is consistent with the Person-Centered counselling model being offered - in practice this is usually more than 10 hours, and at best, 20 hours. It is best practice to balance your training, supervision, and personal therapy, according to the theoretical delivery of the course.

As of September 2015, the required number of personal therapy hours is 20 or above as required by the student.

Andy and Debbie will always try to ensure that you find your own balance, and from their experience know that with hard work, the balance finds itself, by engaging in a therapeutic Triad with training, personal counselling, and supervision.
