When novels became more popular, their prevalence panicked the elites of the day as a frivolous activity that would rot the brain. Today, you might hear similar arguments targeted against activities such as watching T.V., browsing online or playing computer games. Psychologists studying the effects of technology on the human mind have a mounting body of evidence suggesting that technology is having an impact on the way we think, are these changes for the better?

Technology’s frenetic development has made our lives, work and leisure, faster and trying to keep up with this speed of life is having a mental strain on many people. This creates a demand for appropriately trained Counsellors, Psychologists and Life Coaches.

The courses in this category accredited by ACCPH – The Professional Body for Accredited Counsellors, Coaches, Psychotherapists and clinical Hypnotherapists, are accepted to be at the following levels:

  • 100-hour Certificate Courses = Level 3
  • 400-hour Advanced Certificate Courses = Level 4
  • 600-hour Diplomas = Level 5
  • ​800-hour Advanced Diplomas = Level 6
  • 1200-hour Higher Advanced Diplomas = Level 6

Many courses are also accredited by the CMA – The Complimentary Medicine Association. Please see individual courses for which ones are accepted by one or both organisations.

N.B. Students completing three courses will hold level 3 qualifications for each. On completion of a fourth, that can either have another level 3 qualification or upgrade to a Level 4 Advanced Certificate. Students are also permitted to complete additional courses to enhance their qualification and so their areas of expertise, right up to a Level 6 Higher Advanced Diploma.
