Metanoia’s Counselling courses do not require any specific academic or training qualifications. Applicants need to show that they are interested in learning more about counselling and in developing the personal and professional qualities involved in the practice of counselling or counselling skills. These include the ability to develop a high level of empathy with the client, tolerance of different value systems, a willingness and ability to cope with deep feelings and the capacity for self-awareness and self-reflection. All applicants are required to attend an Introductory Workshop and an assessment interview.
Prospective students need to consider whether to apply for the Diploma or for the BA (Hons). Applicants who wish to take the degree will need to complete a 2000 word essay at the beginning of their first year, details of which will be given at the Introductory Workshop.
