There are a bewildering number of counselling and psychotherapy courses on offer: yet often trainees are not fully aware of the implications of their choice of course for their time, finances and future career until they have already begun training. Choosing a Counselling or Psychotherapy Training takes the reader through all the stages of the therapeutic training path, looking at everything from starting a course to employment prospects.
Informative and realistic, the book includes:
* Theoretical approaches to counselling and psychotherapy
* Preparation for starting a course: costs and course content
*Qualifications, registration, accreditation and research
*Careers in therapy
Choosing a Counselling or Psychotherapy Training is essential preparatory reading for all those embarking on counselling or psychotherapy courses, as well as for trained counsellors and therapists considering their career development.
