Absolutely appalling, don't waste your money.

by Helen - March 2017

I bought three courses: Counselling & Psychotherapy and two on CBT. I had grave concerns about the quality of the course materials. The Counselling and Psychotherapy pages are riddled with spelling and grammatical errors. Many of the sentences are so poorly worded as to be meaningless. The introductory section isn't an introduction to counselling: instead it seems to delve into a very specific academic issue in the field of psychology. The research referred to isn't referenced and the writer uses sweeping generalisations (s/he keeps referring to 'them' and 'they' without ever specifying who is being talked about). It's like reading a very poor GCSE essay. I have already done some counselling training and was looking forward to using these courses to refresh my knowledge and develop new skills. However, judging by the first, they would have done nothing for my professional development so I asked for my money back on the CBT courses. I had to argue to get this sorted, despite the advertised no-hassle returns policy. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE.

I found that it was convenience and easy to assess to study online. The materials were rich and cover all the topics that I want to know. It was good that there were a little test in every session which made me more understand and remember what I had learned. Thank you so much.
