Why Study Counselling & Psychology?

Join our expert tutors Dr Nick and Karen as they help you learn about the people around you.  Whether you’re struggling to help other people, you need to understand the psychology of people at work, school or home or you’re just curious about the human mind, studying psychology or counselling will help you.

What is the difference between Counselling and Psychology? 

Psychology is a scientific discipline that focused on evidence based strategies to diagnose and help people with mental health issues (non-medicinally).  Psychology focuses on human behaviour and thought processes. Psychology is a government regulated industry.  That means there are very strict regulations about who can call themselves and practice professional as a psychologist.  Completing a 100 hour certificate course will not qualify you to call yourself or practice as a psychologist.  These courses will provide you with insight, understanding and information about a specific subject in psychology.  

Counselling provides a professional service to help people resolve issues.  Counselling is not a government regulated industry.  If you want to practice professionally as a counselling it is best to look at a minimum Diploma in Counselling.

Who are these online counselling and psychology courses courses for?

These courses will work for you if you are looking for a fully tutor supported counselling or psychology course that is not a huge commitment, that doesn’t cost you the earth but will still get you thinking and learning and most importantly get you the result you want.  Many students do a single subject as a stepping stone to a bigger thing, or find its enough to help improve their relationships, be able to help others more effectively or just develop a deeper understanding of the people around them.

Do I have to know much about psychology or counselling before I start?

No, our psychology and counselling certificate courses assume no prior knowledge and are designed as a practical guide to help you learn.

What is the course duration?
