MHCPC First year student:
“Upon completion of my first year of the course I have come to learn that I have gained from it immensely. Whilst at times it has been challenging, I have been rewarded each and every week. On some occasions it has been through new personal insight, on others it has been through a new shared group experience.
I began this course as a naïve young man who saw things in a rigid way. I believe this course together with my own personal therapy has brought about a very positive change in me, both personally and professionally.
If deciding whether or not to join this course be under no illusions it will require, dedication, perseverance, resilience and a big measure of bravery. The rewards have been worth it and even though I have only completed the first year, I am already excited for what is to come.“

MHCPC post graduate comments:
“My main reasons for doing a course in counselling were personal development and the desire to find a more meaningful direction in my life. Some other training institutions were much less welcoming than MHCPC and seemed more narrow minded in the type of student they would accept.
The MHCPC offered psychodynamic training which was the main factor. Also it’s location which was particularly favourable for me particularly as I wanted to be in a training group of people who would be local and so be more likely to provide a support network in the future. I immediately felt comfortable at the open evening and subsequent interview with the Directors.
Completing the MHCPC course has been hugely important in terms of my own personal development and in establishing a firm basis for starting a career in psychodynamic counselling.”
“The interview at the MHCPC convinced me I had found the right place to do my training. The 3 years spent at the MHCPC have been incredibly challenging on so many different levels: emotional, practical and intellectual. The quality and depth of the teaching combined with regular therapy have developed my self awareness and have given me skills (an interest in questioning things, the ability to challenge situations, the confidence to rely on my thoughts and perception, the ability to question myself, counselling skills and technique, etc) necessary to practice as a counsellor.
I have no doubt that training as a psychodynamic counsellor was the right decision for me and I am satisfied that the choice of the MHCPC has made it a very valuable and precious experience.”
