Former counselling student returns to college as a guest speaker

Max Dalda Muller studied at the College from 2009 to 2011 and now works at a rehabilitation centre in Weston-Super-Mare, which he was introduced to as part of a work placement module on his college course. He was invited to speak to a current group of Level 5 Higher Diploma in Counselling Practice students about counselling techniques, as well as his personal experiences and career progression.

Max said,

“I found this course completely life-changing; it has helped me in my personal as well as professional life. I wanted to help people and have a meaningful career. I am now considering progressing into teaching counselling as a profession.”

The course focuses on practical aspects of counselling, including personal development, skills practice and supervision skills, as well as academic topics such as research. Completion of the course enables students to become BACP (British Association of Counselling and Psychotherapy) qualified, and gives credits towards a Master’s Degree in Professional Studies (MA Counselling) at Bath Spa University, which Max is currently working towards.

The College has open evenings througout the year where we promoting the full range of counselling courses available. Please see the events section for upcoming open events. For more information, call 01278 441234.
