- Extra professional skills and particular topics for more profound learning that can be presented by your trainer, by another professional invited for a workshop on a particular topic, or by students themselves so that they learn to present their specialisation with clarity and verve. Among the extra skills there can be techniques / models such as: brainstorming or mindmapping, solution-focused theory and methods, body language, focusing, family constellations, forcefield analysis or appreciative inquiry.

Topics for more in-depth learning can be chosen from a list your trainer will offer and from suggestions or requests from course participants - to name some possibilities:



  1. conflict management

  2. working with couples

  3. individuation, autonomy and selfview

  4. grief and loss

  5. diversity and multicultural issues

  6. aspects of meaning or existential perspectives

  7. addictions (and eating disorders)

  8. telephone / online counselling or coaching

  9. personal / professional boundaries and referring clients on

  10. helping clients get in touch with feelings and emotions

  11. helping clients that have suffered severe trauma

  12. non-violent communication

  13. mindfulness training

  14. brief counselling or coaching

  15. research in counselling or coaching: pros / cons, methods.

Any other topics that are relevant for further professional development may be considered.


The minimum of 120 hours of clientwork can be achieved by working as counsellor or coach in a volunteer organisation, provided the manager or supervisor can sign the relevant certificate for you and permission has been obtained from the Academy for Counselling and Coaching. Some or all of the hours can be accumulated in your own (starting) practice or in a work setting. Any issues you encounter related to (client)work can be presented as casematerial in intervision (with due attention to confidentiality and to the Ethical Code). You can also act as mentor or be available as co-trainer.

At the very start of Level 2 you do not have to be actively working as counsellor or coach, but it is imperative you gain sufficient clientwork experience at some time during the course.


It is optional, but recommendable, to regularly meet with fellow students of your group to practise or study together or to discuss and set up projects like a workshop, joint marketing or other (business) ventures.
You also need to make sure you get personal counselling or coaching for 5 hours and this from another professional than you met with for the Level 1 requirements - this is to broaden your experience and to have an opportunity to work on remaining personal issues or questions. All three parts of Practice, Knowledge and Inner growth need to be incorporated in your essay for Level 2. The oral exam will be based on that essay.
Take care not to attempt too much at once - some things require a growth or maturation process and not everything can be accelerated. Be aware that Level 2 is not designed to teach you how to counsel or coach (that is what Level 1 was for), but it can help you improve the quality of your counselling or coaching by learning from Intervision and from the various in-depth topics that can deepen understanding and broaden your professional repertoire.
