The Essential Toolkit

The Essential Toolkit is a suite of 15 training days that meets the 2019 BACP competence framework for working with children and young people (4-18 years). The Essential Toolkit equips practitioners with the skills, knowledge and abilities to work as children and young people's counsellors, providing that the practitioner already holds a formally recognised counselling qualification.

Three Ways to Learn

1) If you are new to counselling children and young people, we recommend the Essential Skills Kit, which provides you with 8 one-day courses, delivered live online that cover the essential skills you will need.

2) If you are already working with children and you people and are looking for CPD in child and adolescent mental health issues we recommend the Essential Topics Kit

3) If you would like to attend just one day's training or a selection of training that suits your needs, we recommend booking individual courses.
