What Fellow Students Are Saying

I can honestly say that I found CSR to be such wonderful support for me as I waded my way through Level Four of the Diploma in Counselling. My only regret is that I didn't sign up sooner.

I found the online lectures incredibly accessible. The wonderful way in which theory was explained by Rory and Ken cut through the often off-putting academic, wordy explanation within textbooks and other online resources.

So many aspects of the counselling process, the practical skills and the theories behind the skills are provided within CSR. There is even wise advice imparted on placement and support for looking ahead to professional practice. You couldn't ask for more.

You can feel the warmth and genuine positive regard that Ken and Rory have for the counselling students who access their resources. I found their kindness to be a huge support. Especially when I was doubting my capabilities along the way.

I can't recommend the CSR resource enough. Invest in your academic journey and reward yourself with a user-friendly guide to becoming a counsellor.

- Rebecca

I’m now on the first year of an integrative degree but have been using CSR since my level 2 certificate.
I don’t think I would’ve made it so far on my own, so I wanted to take the opportunity to send a big heartfelt thank you to all the team at Counselling Tutor!

- Gavin

The assignment guidance is absolutely brilliant and wish I had it at the start of my three years here at the University Centre at Blackburn College.

Phillipa

This is a huge shout-out to Rory and the gang at Counselling Tutor and also this CSR community and CSR resources.

I have just received a grade for my first essay on my foundation degree and I came out with the first (75%).

Thank you to everyone who provided me with information hints and tips. Also for putting up with me bombarding Facebook with questions.
Thank you, CSR team.

- Sarah

The resources you share are a God-sent and very well laid out and put together.

- Corne Schafer

I would highly recommend CSR to anyone studying counselling. Your style of lecturing is perfect for my learning abilities. 

- Kate Holmes

As a tutor, thank you.  Your resources are invaluable for students and tutors alike.

More feedback from fellow students

I would like to say that the support from Counselling Tutor is amazing. Being able to receive live support with the discussion groups, along with Rory’s lectures, have helped me so much when the self-doubt is raging and I’m feeling a bit isolated.

Counselling Tutor really feels like my ‘counselling home’ and I can’t recommend it enough.

- Alison
I found the CSR so helpful during my studies. I could not have completed without it. It was a lifesaver. Rory and Ken explain so well and simply.
Thank you.
 
- Donna

I liked the way CSR gives clear explanations and encouraged reflection on my own interpretation. Your resources should be flagged up as essential to anyone considering counselling training.

I certainly couldn’t have got as far as I did without it.
Thank you.

- Anna

I have just qualified at level 5, and have been singing the Counselling Tutor praises to all my classmates - your exceptional customer service just highlights the quality of the care offered by Counselling Tutor

Theory, Skills, Professional Consideration and Counselling Research 

Research Guide for Counsellors

In this section of the CSR, you will find a comprehensive set of resources to help you find authority websites that give accurate, factual primary and secondary research information on your chosen topic,as well as guidance on how to structure your time.

Also included are hints and tips on how to structure your presentation and work as a team, as well ason how to design and execute an outstanding presentation that will gain the highest grade.

Counselling Theory

Differing theories broken down into easy-to-understand ‘chunks’, with clear examples for you to follow.

Each piece of theory is explained without the use of jargon, using clear examples of why the theory is important and how it is applied to practice.

Modalities covered include Person Centred, Transactional Analysis, Gestalt, Integrative Therapy, Attachment Theory, EMDR and Behavioural-based modalities such as CBT and REBT.

 

Counselling Skills

With most counselling courses asking you to undergo a skills assessment, this section of the CSR is essential.

Here you will find separate sections outlining each skill, how it is applied and the reason for its use. You can listen to audio examples of skills being used in sessions.

Whether you are just starting at an introductory level or whether you are studying higher education, you will find the guidance invaluable in developing or enhancing your counselling skills.

Ethics, Culture, Law and Clinical Supervision

Studying counselling is so much more than remembering theory and learning skills: there is an ethical foundation that is fundamental to good practice.

The ethics section covers considerations such as working within an ethical framework, abiding by legislation and working with a diversity.

The ethics section also explores note taking and storage, use of supervision, dealing with ethical dilemmas and your own self-development as a counsellor.
