What our students say

  • I chose this course as I am a foster carer and wanted to learn counselling skills to help children. I have learned so much about myself as a person throughout the counselling courses leading to the foundation degree and also in the way I relate to others. The staff and the other students make the course a very supportive environment to learn. I love the course and hope to go on to achieve an honours degree. Then go on to counsel children.

    Alice Marie DixonFoundation Degree in Counselling

  • I chose this particular course at TyneMet as I was looking to achieve a qualification in counselling, and this fitted in perfectly with the limited spare time that I had, juggling a busy job and a large family! I would really like to move on to the Level 3 Certificate on completion, with a view to doing the Foundation Degree.
