Catherine Hews

I didn’t feel there was a need to study anywhere else, GC offered everything I wanted to do so I simply progressed from Level 2 upwards. I was at the point in my career as a Foster Care Supporter that I felt additional skills in counselling would be beneficial, not just for me but for the families I support.”

I have always been curious about people’s behaviour and their motivations and this course gave me an understanding of these topics. The support is excellent here from lecturers, they are always there to help out. The facilities are great too especially with the link with the University of Gloucestershire, we could borrow books from their campus library.

I hope to have my own counselling practice one day and definitely think that this course is a stepping stone towards achieving that!
