Tŷ Elis Diploma

In Therapeutic Counselling 2022 - 2024


The Tŷ Elis Diploma in Therapeutic Counselling is a part time Level 4/5 diploma in counselling and psychotherapy delivered in South Wales; one evening per week and occasional weekend days. The course is two years long and is accredited by the National Counselling Society and, at the discretion of the Society, is a route onto a national register of counsellors which is accredited by the Professional Standards Authority   On successful completion of the course you will be qualified to start Counselling in your own right.  You can find out more about the diploma in the Course Outline section and the Tutors section.

Supervised Practice

Our diploma requires 100 hours of supervised practice with clients of Tŷ Elis.  

Because Tŷ Elis is a general Counselling and Psychotherapy practice, we can provide you with easy access to a broad client base, supported by highly experienced Counsellors who will provide supervision twice a month.


Before applying think hard.  Most people who sign up to the Tŷ Elis Diploma will have other commitments, for example, full time jobs, parental responsibilities and so on.  Studying on top of the “day job” is tough and requires a big commitment; however, the reward is an excellent qualification that enables you to start your professional career as a Counsellor.

Entry Requirements

This course is designed to meet the learning Level 4/5.  This is the level suggested by the UK Government as the minimum standard for professional competence as a Counsellor, particularly, those aiming to work in the NHS.  Entry to the course will be by a full application and interview process; therefore selection is based on a number of factors which will include ability to work at the level required, experience and current knowledge and the ability to understand and practice in an ethically sensitive manner.
