College Overview




PCI College was set up with the intention of providing students with a broad education in counselling and psychotherapy and in 2001 the college became a Collaborative College of Middlesex University. Our programmes are characterised by an integrative, person-centred, approach to counselling & psychotherapy training. Through their extensive training, students are introduced to all the main theorists, as well as being afforded the opportunity to delve into important topics such as Abnormal Psychology, Loss & Grief, Substance Addictions, to name but a few. This expansive breadth of training, in conjunction with, the provision of high quality, user-friendly teaching, is one of the key factors that each year continues to attract many students to join the growing PCI College family of qualified counsellors and psychotherapists.

With over 20 years of experience, PCI College continue with our founders pioneering work by embracing the continued raising of academic standards in the context of proposed professional regulation, while still making training as accessible as possible; by continuing to set a high standard of personal development in training; by raising awareness around the huge range of issues that people still struggle with in this country - depression, anxiety, suicide, addictions, relationship difficulties, etc; and by promoting an integrative approach within our field, and with our fellow professionals.
