Testimonials

“In a bid to help and understand my daughter’s condition, I signed up for the Specialist Diploma in Counselling Psychology and have attended 2 out of the 3 modules so far.

Relations have greatly improved in the family and with my daughter specifically, since my taking of this course and I am very proud to say that the lecturer as well as the course content have provided my family with great insights to parenting and how to interact with my 2 teenagers with attentive listening and improved communications skills. Further, I have benefited from attending the course and done a lot of personal reflection and processing with the concepts and topics learnt.” – C.H.W., 2019

“The module gave us the opportunity to move beyond the world of counselling and beyond our comfort zone. there were many opportunities that were given to us in this module. Firstly, we were placed in the shoes of the counsellor and his client. Secondly, to work together with our classmates and teamates and lastly help me realise that as a adult student, its not to late to learn new skills.

The lecturer shared his techniques and experiences in great depth .” – M.A., 2019

Class photos may look a little different now but we are glad to hear that the students still feel well-connected with their classmates and lecturer.

Here’s a class photo from one of the recent modules that we conducted purely on Zoom in June 2020 for the module COUN101 – Foundations of Counselling. We are happy to see students adapting to the online delivery of classes and having fun!
