Why BSY students recommend our Counselling Training

Although there are various different courses which come under the umbrella of counselling training, students all have one thing in common – a desire to help people to understand their problems and to live a better life.  Many BSY counselling students will already have some experience, perhaps from working within the voluntary sector, and then find that they want to increase their knowledge and gain qualifications.  Shoshana Zimmer said that she chose her course because “human relationships and interactions are of a real interest to me and I feel I have the capacity to assist others.”  She feels that her course will help her in the future to assist others with difficult stages of their lives, and she hopes to continue developing her studies and working in the field on a practical level.  Among other various subjects, in the future Shoshana would like to study Anger and Aggression Management and Family Therapy.  She said, “I highly recommend the courses!  They are varied, interesting, inspiring and thought provoking!  I wish I had time to take all of the courses on offer!”

Vivian Turner decided to enrol on a counselling training course with BSY as she works for a rehabilitation clinic.  She is studying Alcohol Dependency and also Psychology and Treatment of Alcoholism.  She said, “at the moment, therapy and nursing are two different working areas.  By completing these two courses, I hope to work better across the two areas, as a Nurse/Therapist.”  Like Shoshan, she would also like to study other related courses, for example bereavement and family therapy.  Her advice to anyone considering studying with BSY is not to hesitate.  She said, “try to study something that you have an interest in, or could help with your career.  You have the freedom of studying in your time, support of tutors, prompt return of your work, and well worth the money.”

As a previous student with BSY, Kate Kee wanted to add to her qualifications by enrolling for Advanced Counselling Training.  She decided to study NLP at the same time, commenting that “the addition of these courses to my qualifications will make my business more ‘rounded’ and ensure my clients get good value for money!”  Since qualifying with BSY she has started her own Animal Assisted Therapy which is now thriving.   In future she would also like to study Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, and commented that she feels that she will be a ‘lifelong’ student.

Student feedback on the BSY counselling course

If you are considering a counselling course with BSY then there are many you can choose.  Subjects include, amongst others, Drama Healing Therapy, Anger and Aggression Management, and Behavioural Therapy.  We have created this news post so you may learn more about studying with BSY and read the thoughts and opinions of one of those who previously enrolled on a topic – in particular those who have already studied a BSY counselling course.

Stella Morris took the Cognitive Behaviour Therapy and Child Psychology courses.  She chose these subjects as ‘having studied Advanced Counselling, I feel it would compliment my career having a therapy to work with.  Also broaden my options in working with children or adults.’  Stella decided to study with BSY as ‘they give you the freedom to work at your own pace, with tutors available to work with you over the phone.  Also, the comfort to post your work and get it back so quickly, easy to pay instalments, and friendly staff over the phone to deal with queries.’  Thinking of her studies, she has been most happy with ‘how I am challenged with my questions and also the percentage marks on my lessons.  I am happy with what I am learning in child psychology as I have 3 under-five-year-olds.’  Stella feels that the course may help her to ‘try new tasks with my parenting.  Also to communicate with the children in different ways’, and ‘to help others find answers and solutions within themselves and help them find a more positive future.’  To those who are thinking of studying with BSY, Stella would say ‘they would not be disappointed: comfort of your own environment; lessons are marked quickly with good feedback; easy instalment plans; a variety of courses to choose from; very enjoyable; and you can complete the course in your own time.  Advice is available over the phone and queries are dealt with efficiently.’  In the future, she would consider studying some of the BSY practitioner development modules.  For information on these subjects, please call the BSY course advisors. Stella agrees that she ‘would recommend BSY to a friend’, ‘studying with BSY is enjoyable’ and that ‘BSY courses are excellent value for money’.

Lisa Summers decided to enrol on the BSY Alcohol Dependency Counselling training.  She chose to study with BSY as ‘my husband recommended them.  He is currently studying with BSY.’  Lisa has been most happy with ‘the turnaround of marked papers.  Really impressed that after only a week or so of me submitting a completed unit, I receive the marked paper back.’  In future, Lisa would like to study the Basic and Advanced Counselling Skills topics.  If someone is thinking of studying with BSY, Lisa recommends ‘that they should definitely do it as it’s such an enjoyable experience and you do it all at your own pace.  The tutors are so helpful and friendly and are really quick at marking your work so no hanging around for long periods of time.  The selection of courses is incredible, not just to help with career progression but also for personal enjoyment/development.’  Lisa agrees that she would ‘recommend BSY to a friend’ and that ‘BSY courses are excellent value for money’.

Viola Chimuka studied Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder Management.  ‘I wanted to have more understanding, knowledge and skills of identifying and managing traumatic stress disorder – being helpful to patients, friends, family members, work mates, people in the community and myself.’  Viola chose to study with BSY because ‘I study at my own pace of time and the advisors are so helpful.  Studying with BSY is enjoyable and the courses are not very expensive.  Methods of payment are excellent – I don’t feel strained with finance…’  Whilst studying with BSY, Viola has been most happy with ‘how the levels and strategies have been introduced and the data have been very clear. The course deals with reality and I have expanded my understanding and skills of dealing with stressed people.’  She feels that it may help her in the future to ‘apply what I have learnt practically and do some other courses in the same category to strengthen my knowledge so that I can be more effective in stress management’.  If you are considering joining our family of students, Viola would say to ‘choose a course that you will enjoy doing and that will make a change in your life, and in other people’s lives.  The course which will give you more understanding and knowledge of certain life aspects’.
