Base 51 has seen a growing demand for mental health support in Nottingham and around the county. Our own youth counselling services have been at the forefront of this challenge.

Whether you work in private practice, a hospital or clinic, a school or university, or a charity, counselling is a career that offers endless opportunities for personal and professional growth.

Counselling courses can also be great for those working in person-centred roles looking to learn the skills to help support others and improve communication and listening skills.

New to 2024, we offer the AIM accredited Level 2 Award in Introduction to Counselling Skills and the Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills.
