Due to the current government-issued social distancing requirements, our college has been successfully transformed into a remote/blended learning community for programme delivery. The online delivery will remain in place until social distancing is relaxed, and a return to face-to-face is permittable. Irrespective of the format, the delivery remains on the cutting edge of best practice in counselling and psychotherapy education and training.
