2013 graduate Noeleen O’Callaghan said of the course “Going on my own experience, I would say if you have an interest in this area of therapy then the Child and Adolescent Counselling and Psychotherapy course will definitely give you the knowledge to work with children in a therapeutic setting. Completing the Postgrad Certificate has given me the knowledge and confidence to sensitively challenge how a child’s difficult behaviour is managed, always with the interest of the child to the fore”.
