The counselling course content was marvellous. It touched every area and I believe was integral in me becoming a success at counselling.

After completing the short course in Counselling Therapy, I was inspired and motivated to pursue the level 1 and level 2 as well. Was a life changing experience.

Studying the counselling course at the Northern College has been one of the most profoundly transformative and insightful experiences of my life. It has forever changed me as a person and I view the world through new eyes now.

I am now reaping the rewards from the counselling course and look forward to continuing my studies. Thank you so very, very much for your enduring support, fantastic teaching and boundless patience!
