Student Reviews

Having experienced other colleges, I find that IICP are excellent at managing to offer a high level academic course whilst not in any way compromising on the culture of caring for and listening to what students want and need.
Blathnaid Cox, BA (Hons) 2015 Student
Extremely insightful and valuable course. Showed the potential career so clearly in a safe way. Wonderfully communicated and very patiently explained. Excellent opportunity to explore the understanding of counselling & psychotherapy theory with your peers.

My experience of IICP has been nothing like I have ever experienced before in terms of the warmth, welcome help and support of my learning. Highly qualified tutors, with international experience and solid academic reputations, deeply connect with the class and individual student in their efforts to impart knowledge and wisdom.

I would highly recommend this course to anyone. Really enjoyed it. Pam was a fantastic lecturer and very easy to understand. Learning of counselling theory and then adapting this learning to everyday life was most helpful.
