Counselling Children and Adolescents

Counselling children and adolescents is a field of counselling that specialises in understanding and addressing mental health issues in young people.

This Counselling Children and Adolescents course is the ideal home study solution for someone looking to learn about the role and responsibilities of a trained professional in paediatric therapy.

This counselling course online explores common themes in child counselling such as memory, bullying, conflict resolution, stress, grief and bereavement. It also includes tactical and strategic advice including communication skills and the practicalities of setting up a practice.

Who should study this course?

Children’s counselling training is perfect for anyone looking to develop a career in youth counselling. It is a suitable option for those already working in a support role with children and young people. The content will complement your practical experience with theoretical concepts of counselling.

Distance learning counselling courses such as this could also benefit any parents looking to understand and communicate with their own children, to provide better support as they grow up.

This course does not require any previous experience in youth counselling, or any specific qualifications. However, if you plan to work with children in the future, you will need to have a clean DBS check.

What happens after the course?

At the end of this course, you will have strong, foundational knowledge in youth counselling. If you enjoyed learning about therapy skills, you can continue your studies with a Level 3 RQF Certificate in Counselling Skills, or even prepare for university with an Access to Higher Education Diploma with Psychology & Sociology Pathway.

The NHS, private practices, or education settings are always in need of good, dedicated child counsellors. Undergraduate and postgraduate degrees can prepare you for the role of a child psychotherapist.

Some of the jobs you could consider in this field, as you develop your studies further, include:

  • Child psychotherapist
  • Youth worker
  • Clinical psychologist

On completion of your course, you will receive two certificates:

Certificate 1 is issued by Stonebridge Associated Colleges: Counselling Children and Adolescents Diploma

At the end of this course successful learners will receive a Certificate of Achievement from ABC Awards and Certa Awards and a Learner Unit Summary (which lists the components the learner has completed as part of the course).

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that Stonebridge Associated Colleges has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria. The completion of this course alone does not lead to a regulated qualification* but may be used as evidence of knowledge and skills gained. The Learner Unit Summary may be used as evidence towards Recognition of Prior Learning if you wish to progress your studies in this subject. To this end the learning outcomes of the course have been benchmarked at Level 4 against level descriptors published by Ofqual, to indicate the depth of study and level of demand/complexity involved in successful completion by the learner.

The course itself has been designed by Stonebridge Associated Colleges to meet specific learners’ and/or employers’ requirements which cannot be satisfied through current regulated qualifications. ABC Awards & Certa Awards endorsement involves robust and rigorous quality audits by external auditors to ensure quality is continually met. A review of courses is carried out as part of the endorsement process.

*Regulated qualification refers to those qualifications that are regulated by Ofqual / CCEA / Qualification Wales

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
