TAC Training School

Here’s what some of our Counselling and Clinical Supervision students have said

I am currently studying for the Diploma in Integrative Counselling. So far, my training at TAC has been insightful and rewarding . The theory sessions are thought provoking. The skills and process sessions are helping to facilitate more self awareness. I look forward to continuing on this journey to becoming an integrative counsellor. 


It’s only been module one, I can feel transformation by the teachings already. This opportunity is invaluable just everything about it – WOW! This stuff should be taught early on, especially to all primary care givers. 


I am really enjoying the Foundation Counselling Course at The Awareness Centre Training School. Really looking forward to the next module and continue my learning on the course. 


So far my experience of the Diploma in Clinical Supervision has been pleasant and informative, I do feel that in the 2 weekends I’ve attended so far I’ve obtained tangible learning. It’s been a lovely learning journey so far.  The course has been informative and helpful. I’m really happy with Karen as a tutor, she’s organised and helpful, the material is relevant and the learning activities in the classroom are engaging. 


My experience on the counselling course was thorough and thought provoking. The tutor and course leader were very supportive. Thank you


I have had a good  experience on the Foundation Certificate for Counselling. Karen is an extraordinary and amazing tutor and therapist .

She explained the modules and theories very well and clearly. The structure of the course could have been better around the assignments and results marking. But overall I enjoyed my time and loved the classes , even though they were on Zoom. I’m looking forward to my Diploma course and my further studies towards becoming a psychotherapist.



I started the Certificate in Counselling course with The Awareness Centre in January and I’ve enjoyed it so much. I feel I have learned so much in such a short time. Our tutor Bonny is excellent and is always ready to answer questions with a wealth of experience and knowledge; her passion for Counselling and for teaching our course really shines through. I’m lucky that I get to share the course with some brilliant people too, we have such a diverse and interesting group; I’ve really learned so much from everyone I’m working with.

Through the course my own personal development has been really interesting – to recognise my strengths but also areas that I was not aware of that needed more improvement, but this has still been a very positive process for me and I believe that although the work is always ongoing; I am a much better person for this course and look forward to continuing working on myself to become a good Counsellor in the future.

The training team has been excellent and very supportive and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend both TAC and the course to anyone.


I have just completed module one of the Counselling Certificate course and I can already say that both The Awareness Centre and the course itself really exceeded my expectations. Firstly, I have chosen to study with TAC after extensive research I have done on similar courses and realised there really is nothing out there to compare to this particular course. The communication with the TAC team was very professional and smooth from the very beginning and I found their website very easy to navigate and informative. My first impressions of TAC were that it is an institution ran by very passionate and professional people who genuinely love what they are doing. As for the course itself, it has only been 6 sessions but I have already learnt so much. Our tutor is very knowledgeable, skilled and approachable and she manages the elements of the learning in a well- balanced manner. I feel that the theory we are learning is thoughtfully put together and plenty of time is also allowed to bring what we have been learning into practice. All in all, I would recommend studying at TAC to anyone who is looking to develop their people skills, while making the most out of the actual learning process, as well as to those who decided to take the first necessary step in order to embark on a journey of becoming a qualified counsellor.


After searching many counselling courses online, I came across the Foundation Certificate in Counselling course with The Awareness Centre. I decided to apply for this course, as I really liked the sound of what was being offered.

I can clearly say that now I am halfway through the course, it is one of the best decisions I have ever made. The course is put together very well, I have amazing classmates and an excellent teacher who is knowledgeable and approachable. Bonny makes the classes fun, interactive and is always helpful if you have any questions.

This course has truly been an invaluable learning experience for me and has given me a good grounding in counselling theory and practical skills.  My self-confidence has grown because of this course, which is due to the great support that I have received from The Awareness Centre staff.

This course has exceeded my expectations significantly, and I would recommend it to anyone who is unsure which counselling course to take.


I have recently completed the first module of the Awareness Centre Foundation Certificate. I think the quality of the teaching is very good, and the tutor has managed group dynamics very skilfully. She has ensured everyone gets an opportunity to contribute to discussions, and the way she has structured the training has maximised the opportunities for learning, both from her and from each other. I am enjoying the course and I recommend it to anyone who is keen to learn about person-centred counselling.
