Book your place

Come and join us for our Counselling and Counselling Skills Cert He Offer Holder evening.

Our Counselling and Counselling Skills Cert He programme is a part of the Birkbeck Centre for Counselling.

You will have the opportunity to chat with our Programme Director Dr Esther Ramsay-Jones and find out more about the programme.

Esther is a practising psychodynamic psychotherapist and counsellor. She has worked in university counselling settings and in palliative care contexts, as well as in private practice. She facilitates reflective practice with nursing and allied healthcare teams in an end-of-life setting. 

In our Cert He course you will have the opportunity to practise self-reflection through experiential learning in regular group work and in practising basic counselling skills. You will also learn about the key values and concepts of different counselling theories and techniques. 

This course is ideal if you are interested in gaining counselling skills and understanding a variety of different approaches. You can use it to help you move onto further training to become a qualified counsellor.

Birkbeck has been training psychodynamic counsellors and psychotherapists for over 50 years, and its courses specialise in training counsellors to work in a wide range of organisations.

Birkbeck’s counselling courses have a strong focus on the psychosocial context, exploring difference and diversity in the therapeutic endeavour.

Birkbeck teaching takes place in the evening, leaving you free to study, volunteer or explore London during the day.

This event will be online.
