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 targetted 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, but is it good and bad?
With technology becoming faster and more easily available and people try too keep up with the speed of life and work, so too does the need for appropriately trained Counsellors, Psychologists and Life Coaches. Therefore, good quality professionally accredited and affordable online courses in Counselling, Psychology and Life Coaching are in great demand.
Whether for a new career, change of career, continuing professional development (CPD), or for personal interest, our online distance learning based courses will help you achieve your goals in this rewarding industry.
