Welcome to the Diploma in Integrative Counselling and Psychotherapy, working with Children, Young People and Adults. 

S.M.I.L.E. Counselling & Training have set this Diploma with the aim to provide a solid foundation in the integrative approach to counselling practice. The course is based upon the Humanistic, Person-Centred modality, recognising the individual strengths and qualities of the therapeutic agreement. 

This course is theoretically informed by Person-Centred, Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural theories. There is an emphasis on the therapeutic relationship, self-awareness, empowerment of clients, and awareness of social and cultural contexts as being at the core of therapeutic change. The final module focuses on the competences of therapeutic practice, working with children and young people. The course is anticipated to be credit rated at SCQF level 10/11. 

Course requirements: 

  • 400 taught hours
  • 100 clinical hours
  • 20 hours ongoing clinical supervision at a ratio of 1:6
  • A minimum of 16 hours personal therapy is suggested

The Diploma is a part-time programme, delivered over 2 years. The academic year for the course runs over a 10-month period from September to June, with breaks in line with the West Lothian Academic calendar.
