About the COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills
Students are encouraged to explore their own values and beliefs systems to help them learn about how counselling and therapy works by understanding the tools first hand through experiential learning.
This qualification is widely recognised by many counselling training organisations as a prerequisite for entry onto a counselling diploma programme.
This is the benchmark qualification for our own Diploma in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (DipCBT) programme which is now credit rated at SCQF by Edinburgh Napier University and leads to a qualification in cognitive behavioural therapy.
The course consists of 4 interdependent modules of 30 hours. We are offering access to the course either in the evenings or with full day attendance.
