Train with PH7 ACADEMY

Are you interested in furthering your career with new skills and a new qualification? Or perhaps starting a new career path to become a professional counsellor?

The Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills (CSK-L2) with PH7 Academy is a 22-week programme. This qualification is designed to give learners the underpinning knowledge, skills and competencies to use counselling skills ethically and safely in a variety of contexts and roles.

Please note this course will not allow you to practise as a counsellor; this is the first step towards becoming a counsellor.

The programme has been validated by CPCAB (Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body) who are a UK awarding body that is managed by professional counsellors, trainers and supervisors in their 25th year of operation.

The programme will run Thursday evenings 6-9pm plus three full non-residential weekends 10-5pm. The course starts 3rd January 2019 and concludes 26th May 2019. You will have two breaks during the programme, plus a compulsory exam on the 25th April.


A strong commitment to a student-centred approach lies at the heart of our philosophy encouraging you to become responsible for independent learning and demonstrate an active engagement with the subject area and your work practice.

Is This For You?

This qualification is for:

  • Those starting the first level of training as a professional counsellor
  • Those who want to learn counselling skills in other professional or helping roles
  • Those who want to improve their professional and personal relationships as part of personal development

This qualification could lead to employment or increase employability for those whose role is to support others in e.g. health and social care work, teaching and learning, advocacy and mediation, support and project work, other helping roles.

It provides an additional skill for those already in employment and is likely to lead to increased opportunities for promotion and advancement.
