To achieve Advanced Diploma Level, practicing Emotional Therapeutic Counsellors are encouraged to build up case studies with the consent of their clients over a minimum period of two years (or 200 hours) of supervised practice. The therapist then presents three case studies together with a written presentation, to a Viva Board appointed by the Council.
Success at this stage leads to the counsellor being awarded the Foundation’s Advanced Diploma. He or she will continue to have a supervisor for guidance and support.
Advanced Diploma members may be invited to go on to train as a trainer for the Foundation and/or as a supervisor of other Emotional Therapeutic Counsellors.
Training to Advanced Diploma level involves not less than 550 working hours comprising approximately 208 contact hours, 142 assessed personal study hours (including personal therapy) and a minimum of 200 supervised client hours.
