IMPORTANT NOTE

At present no formal qualifications are required to practice counselling in the UK.
However, prospective students are advised that membership of an appropriate
professional body is highly desirable (and essential for obtaining professional
indemnity insurance). Membership will generally require a programme of training, plus
practical experience gained under supervision, often with a voluntary counselling
organisation.
