Wealden College of Counselling & Psychotherapy

Our course programme offers professional psychotherapy and counselling and training both for those starting in those professions, and for experienced counsellors and psychotherapists wishing to ensure their continuing professional development. Please note that we have psychotherapy and counselling courses currently running, however, we are no longer recruiting new students for these courses. We continue to offer a vibrant programme of CPD workshops and short courses. Please see the links below.

Please note that due to the coronavirus outbreak, and with the health and safety of our clients and staff paramount, Wealden College is temporarily closed for all but essential activities. We hope to be able to resume courses after Easter, once it is safe for groups to be together physically, and will be reviewing the situation in line with advice from the UK Health Authorities. Open Evenings and Taster days are temporarily suspended, however, we are happy to respond by telephone to any inquiries. Please do email us via the inquiries link on the home page of this website, or email directly to: admin@wealdeninstitute.co.uk
