So you think you want to become a counsellor?



ACC have several training agencies who are affiliated to the organisation. This means that they are Christian and have agreed to our Statement of Faith. Our training agencies teach Christian counselling although this is not confined to one model, there are a variety of models across the agencies.


The core training is validated by external awarding bodies. The main two we work with are CPCAB and NOCN. Some training agencies also have courses validated by Higher Education Institutions. Most courses are also validated by ACC and there are regarded as credible Christian Courses.


Courses may vary, however as a general guide
 • There are a set number of guided learning hours for each course
 • There are additional student effort hours for reading & assignments
 • During the courses there may be time allocated for personal development groups.

As part of an ACC approved course you will be offered membership of ACC at advantageous rates and you could benefit from the help and support of others who are on a similar journey. This will help you to explore the subject more fully and confirm is this is your ministry
