The Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling (MHCPC) provides training for people working or planning to work in both paid and voluntary positions in the community. The Centre is in North London in a large historic Georgian house set in its own grounds and accessed by nearby Underground and Bus services. There are excellent teaching facilities, a library and cafeteria.
The Training Programme has developed over many years experience enabling students to work effectively and creatively within the counselling field, in the community and in specific work places. The term 'counselling' is used in many contexts and the variety of trainings and models can be confusing. The MHCPC offers comprehensive training in psychodynamic counselling.
The MHCPC believes there are no short cuts in either the treatment of emotional distress or in counselling training. Carefully structured Courses are offered and designed to give the student sufficient time to be able to absorb and implement the psychodynamic skills and techniques fundamental to working professionally within the therapeutic relationship at the most appropriate depth.
MHCPC graduates take positions in the caring professions working both voluntarily and privately. The Training Programme is structured with this in mind and aims to provide a training based on psychoanalytic concepts which also focuses on the practical application of psychotherapeutic skills needed for both short and long term work.
On successful completion of either the Certificate in Counselling Skills or the Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and Therapy in the Community –which isaccredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy - students will be awarded the formal recognition of their achievement together with the knowledge that they are in possession of a solid foundation with which to embark on their chosen path.
The Manor House Centre for Psychotherapy and Counselling strives to provide equal opportunities and welcomes all applications from all sections of the community, regardless of age, race, religion, gender or sexual orientation.
