Professional Counselling Training

Persona has been successfully providing professional development programmes in counselling and psychotherapy for over twenty years and is one of the leading organisations offering BACP accredited programmes in Scotland. Our programmes are designed to accommodate people who have work commitments during the week. The training programmes are designed to thoroughly prepare students with the professional competence and personal confidence to provide clinical, therapeutic support in a broad range of settings.

The core model which informs all our training is Person-Centred. This means the programmes are not simply about learning the Person-Centred approach; they are about learning within a Person-Centred learning environment. The central values of the Person-Centred approach influence the design, structure and the curriculum of the programmes as well as how they are delivered and managed. Course facilitators and trainers are committed to a Person-Centred philosophy and a trust in the individual’s innate ability find their path in life, to direct his/her own development, to grow and develop their full potential.
