Please note that assignments are submitted electronically. This means you will need to have personal use of a computer and printer as well as access to the internet and email. The Trust is not able to provide students with this facility.
The UK government changed its rules on student visas in 2009. The Psychosynthesis Trust is not currently a Home Office registered training provider. This means that if you require a student visa to study in this country, we cannot currently enrol you on our courses.
Please note that our courses are part-time, Psychosynthesis Trust awarded and accredited by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
Non-UK applicants to note: our trainee counsellors are not allowed to charge for their work until they are qualified. Non-UK applicants will need to either make arrangements to attend a UK placement, or check that their country of residence has either a system of suitable placements or suitably qualified supervisors who can take responsibility for their work as trainees. We advise applicants to check this before they apply for the professional training.
Please state: Do you have a criminal record that might prejudice the interest of clients or counselling, to be taken into account in considering this application?

Our courses in psychosynthesis have a strong experiential aspect to them. We ask all candidates to write a personal statement, which helps us to form a picture of you and your training requirements. We have provided some guidance below on areas to focus on and explore. You are free to include additional information about yourself and although we encourage you to answer each question it is not obligatory. All the information provided is held in the strictest confidence.
As an inclusive organisation, we want to provide the best support possible to a wide range of applicants, including those with additional needs. Additional needs include any disabilities or supplementary educational needs that you may have such as physical or sensory impairments; mental health difficulties including depression; specific learning difficulties like dyslexia and asperger’s; and health conditions such as HIV, epilepsy, arthritis and cancer.
The information that you provide here will not be used to assess your academic suitability for the programme but to ensure that, if you are made an offer to study, we are aware that you may need extra support.
Please submit your application together with a digital (head-shot) photograph of yourself.
Course fees and payment methods can be found on the Price Guide.
