Potential students will be interviewed during August 2019 at Therapy Train Stirling, prior to the offer of a training place. Small group training opportunities like the COSCA Introduction to Counselling Skills Certificate Course can be personally demanding, and this will be explored during initial selection interviews. Participants should consider the emotional impact of a developmental course like this, on themselves and on others in the learning group. This course is based on a humanistic model of relational learning, and depends on the learning group to form a communal support for each individual.

An initial £365 fee deposit will be due, after a place on the course has been offered in advance of the first training day in October; as payment for module 1; and training fees for modules 2-4 are payable in advance. After each module has been completed, the group will have a two week break, as per COSCA guidelines.
