Specialist Diploma in Couples Relationship Counselling

The Diploma In Couples Relationship Counselling course will enable you to recognise the differing dynamics when working with more than one client, & they are struggling with problems in their relationship but want to work through the issues they are facing together. Working with the change in the dynamics in the counselling room - from a one-to-one approach to a couple’s approach - takes skill and a higher level of awareness. Learning how to counsel couples will add significant skills and theory to your existing knowledge and qualifications.

This is a CPD training course and you can use 12 CPD hours toward your yearly CPD hours.  If you’re looking to enrol on the above course and would like further information, feel free to get in touch with a member of our team.

Couples Relationship Counselling courses available nationally and internationally using remote platforms

Surely counselling couples is the same as counselling a single client? Well, no it certainly is not. The dynamics are very different. Relationship issues are one of the most common causes of emotional distress, and often the reason people seek support and guidance with counselling. Often, people think of couple counselling as being helpful in terms of ‘shared issues’ like marital and sexual problems. However, couple counselling can also get to the root and truth of individual issues, sometimes more quickly than individual work. This is because there is also another person present who acts as a check and a balance in a couple's conversation.

Understanding why difficulties between them occur and what can be done about them is often why a couple decide to attend counselling, so that they can learn, recognise and agree to make the changes for their relationship to continue. Our training will give you a thorough understanding, increasing your knowledge, along with a range of strategies and skills for working effectively and ethically with more than one client. We will teach you the practical guidelines and skills to build and maintain supportive and mutually rewarding relationships. This will be presented with integrative theory and make good use of your own previous experiences with counselling.
