CPCAB Counselling courses at The Counsel House in Wickford - A refreshing place to be.

We run a wide range of counselling skills and counsellor training courses at The Counsel House.


They begin with the level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills (CSK-L2) and progress through to the level 5 Diploma in Psychotherapeutic Counselling (PC-L5).


Counselling courses are verified by CPCAB, The Counselling & Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body, which is run by counsellors and psychotherapists for counsellors and psychotherapists.  All courses have been approved by the Qualifications & Curriculum Authority and, therefore, attract credits towards higher education and training.


If you are uncertain about which course is the right one for you, then call Colin Dendle on 07581 570755 for a brief chat, or email him on


The photographs shown on this website offer a 'taste' of the peace that pervades the centre and surrounding area.  Contact us if you would like a visit!


And within our training area we provide students with a kitchen facility where they can make a tea or coffee or heat up a meal in the microwave oven before their course begins.  This is a really useful facility especially for students studying on evening courses having come straight from work.  The centre will be open 30 minutes prior to the commencement of the course for this purpose.
