Psychology Diploma Level 3


Daley Gibbon

Telford, shropshire

Level4 advanced counselling and psychotherapy

I loved this course and learnt a lot about the course and how the mind works most of all it had a massive impact on myself and didn’t realise I was being a counsellor or a therapist until now my tutor Lee was brill and was very patient with me even though I was getting stressed because of my dislexia



Addictive course content, written in such an inviting and each to understand way. It has actually been fun to learn, which I did not expect.



Almost put of signing up, though I would find it difficult but so glad I signed up. It was in no way difficult, only enjoyable, teaching me so so much. Thanks to my tutor Lucy, she has been amazing.



I was put of college because wanted to earn as I learn. Found this the perfect solution, half way through the course now and enjoyed all of it. Easy read and easy contact with the support team and my tutor



Completed this course, good support and very interesting.
