About This Course

Counsellors help individuals to find their own answers and make their own choices. They help clients to reduce confusion and gain a different perspective to cope with life’s challenges and make positive changes where necessary.

About Counselling Children & Adolescents

Counselling children and adolescents is often different from counselling adults, though the objective is the same. Methods used in counselling children and adolescents often depend on the clients’ age, development stage and individual challenges. Your role as the counsellor is to help the client, no matter the age, to make their own decisions rather than making decisions for them.

About Our Counselling Children & Adolescents Course

From the counselling relationship through child development, as well as the information you need to establish a successful practice, our online counselling course will prepare you with the knowledge needed to be an effective child and adolescent counsellor.

What Can I Do After Taking This Course?

With educational establishments looking to provide professional, in-house counselling for their students, there are ever increasing opportunities for counsellors who are able to relate to young people in an understanding and appropriate therapeutic environment.

Work as a counsellor. After successfully completing our counselling courses online, you could work as a counsellor, spending time with clients on their own, with their families, or in groups. You could counsel clients in schools, through youth services or charities, or in your own private practice. As a benchmark, school counsellors can earn up to £61,000*/year.

Build your career. If you wish to further build your career in counselling following this child counselling course, you could continue your training and education to become a child and adolescent psychotherapist working for a health agency, in social services, hospitals, special clinics, or in private practice.
