The London Foundation Certificate in Counselling & Psychotherapy is a training course specifically designed to provide an introduction to counselling & psychotherapy skills and theories.
This course is supported by the LDPRT and also endorsed by NAOS.

Common reasons to take the course include:

  • As a foundation phase to work towards further counselling/psychotherapy training
  • For those intending to work towards accreditation as psychosexual and relationship/couples therapists in the future
  • For those who wish to develop their self-awareness, their relationships with others and their communication skills
  • By those wishing to enhance their knowledge in the field of sexuality and personal relationships

This is a part-time one year attitudes and skills-based course that will devote itself to the theoretical and the practical aspects of counselling & psychotherapy , whilst also providing space for personal reflection and development.

By the end of the foundation training, and successful completion, you will have acquired the basic counselling & psychotherapy skills which may allow you to apply to progress to a more substantive generic counselling training or The London Diploma in Psychosexual and Relationship Therapy training.


The programme acknowledges the diversity and multi-faceted nature of society; it is designed to support professional practice based on integrity, respect, challenge and the life affirming nature of sexuality in all its forms. Applications are welcome from all those who are suitably qualified, regardless of racial or ethnic origins, nationality, spiritual beliefs or religion, gender, age, social background, or sexual orientation/preference.
The London Foundation Certificate in Counselling & Psychotherapy reserves the right to amend, change or rearrange course design or trainers at its own discretion.
