Personal therapy or personal development costs

Personal therapy/personal development can take a number of forms. Most students undertaken some therapy, where they are the client, to increase their self-awareness and increase their objectivity when Counselling.  Students normally combine this with some continuing professional development.  This is not included in the course price, which is normal practise, as students want the flexibility to choose what they want.
