Why train with TIC+?

Through our work offering free access counselling to children and young people age 9 – 21 across Gloucestershire, we know the issues that young people are bringing and can adapt our teaching to meet the needs of counsellors and young clients. We create a unique person-centred learning environment, and offer our students the Core Conditions and create a warm, safe and supportive learning environment.

Undertaking regular CPD helps you keep your skills and knowledge up to date and contributes to client safety. That’s why TIC+ is pleased to offer a range of training events for professionals covering many different aspects of counselling and psychotherapy, often with a focus on counselling children and young people.
