Qualifications

Regulated qualifications & progression route

CPCAB are dedicated to providing the best counselling and life coaching qualifications. By continually reviewing the latest research into effective counselling we guarantee that our qualifications are up-to-date and relevant.

The CPCAB model of practitioner development underpins all our qualifications. The model is research informed and continually evolving, and can be applied across a wide range of counselling modalities and training programmes.
