I am actually for the first time enjoying learning. I am really looking forward to progressing to the next level.
I would recommend the level 2 course to anyone that would like to gain a better perspective of what a counsellor does or to simply learn counselling skills to help them in their current jobs and everyday lives.
The support is fantastic: always just an email away or completely approachable in class times.
Its been such a positive experience to be at York Learning and to have been taught by the experienced and supportive tutors.
I have felt incredibly supported and valued. York Learning has restored my faith in education! I can not thank you enough for the kindness and support shown to me.
I have just completed the level 3 in Counselling. The best thing I have ever done. The support from York Learning is second to none. With a fantastic programme of study and the world’s greatest tutor you can not go wrong.
One of the nicest places that I have ever studied at. Supportive, professional and very kind. Thank you York Learning for an amazing experience and for helping me complete my Diploma in Person-Centered Counselling.
I’m not just saying this but all of the students who have come over from your college are really high calibre. They are excellent ambassadors for your course!
