It seems that more often than not in modern Britain people are only seeking counselling when they have a problem or have got to a crisis point in their lives. Why is this? Perhaps we should be having some regular maintenance on our mental health and emotional wellbeing rather than one off bursts?
With the current reports of men under the age of 50 dying from suicide it just draws more attention again to how mental health is not talked about, particularly within that demographic group.
People seek therapy for a variety of reasons, long or short term. Individuals may be going through a divorce, feelings of an empty-nest, overwhelmed with a new job or grieving a loved one to name just a few reasons.
Chrysalis Not For Profit provide a number of Chrysalis courses that are designed to help you establish a career in counselling. Each course is different. How do you decide which course is right for you?
What kind of counsellor do you want to become?
Counselling is a talking therapy which can be used to guide a patient through a range of mental health issues. However there are different types of counselling.
Chrysalis offer training in several types of counselling. We offer a range of courses that can teach you about hypnotherapy, counselling skills and theory as well as psychotherapeutic counselling. The first question you need to ask is which of these skills do you want to learn?
The majority of Chrysalis students choose Course 3. This is the Psychotherapeutic Counselling Course. This training programme teaches you about Chrysalis Not For Profit’s unique Psychotherapeutic counselling. It combines the most effective elements of established counselling and psychotherapy models. This course is popular because it provides value for money. It includes everything you learn in Course 2 on the Chrysalis syllabus and more.
What do you want to do with your qualification?
You also need to think about what you want to do once you finish your Chrysalis course. Do you want to take one of our more advanced training programmes? If so then Course 3 is the programme you need to sign up for. This syllabus can open the door to Chrysalis’ more advanced qualifications.
How much do you want to pay?
However, this isn’t the only thing you need to take into consideration. You should also think about what you can afford and which course will provide you with the most value for money. You can utilise a number of options to reduce the cost of a Chrysalis course. For example, you could pay in advance with a cheque and receive a 20% discount.
Ask questions in your interview
Remember that you can start your course straight away once you’ve been offered a place. You don’t need any previous experience or qualifications. However, you will have an interview before you’re accepted onto your chosen Chrysalis course.
This interview is your time to ask questions. Are you unsure which course is right for you? Find out more. The Chrysalis team are here to help you choose the right course for you and your circumstances.

I have reviewed the survey results from the Belfast Open Day last month and I was really pleased to read such lovely words.
The survey was very short just to get a bit of feedback about how the day went and what we can do better. The open days can be tricky to predict and plan so we are always looking for feedback and improvements to make the days as enjoyable and informative as possible. Continue reading
