HND Counselling is jointly awarded by the SQA and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP). Once completed, it enables professional registration as a Counsellor and a Member of the BACP.
The BACP ethical framework for counselling professions is embedded throughout this course and you will be given the opportunity to develop your counselling skills, reflective knowledge and awareness via supervised practice with clients. Further study of the importance of contractual relationships and ethical and regulatory frameworks will also be covered.
This qualification incorporates the study of counselling skills, counselling theory, professional values, principles, and ethics, alongside enhanced self-reflection and awareness, whilst you build your practice experience to achieve the mandatory 100 hours of supervised client contact on placement.
