About Astranti Connect
Who are we?
In short, we are Astranti Connect, a specialist counselling training organisation.
All our courses are designed and delivered by our team of qualified experts and practising therapists, people who understand what is involved in working as an effective & successful counsellor.
We are passionate about counselling and the counselling profession. For us it is more than a job, it’s a way of life!
Our mission statement
Creating confident and effective counsellors who can have a positive impact on others and their communities.
At the heart of counselling is the client, the person that needs help. We believe that it is important to attend to every need of the client, their mind, body, emotions and soul.
Our courses reflect this belief, after all, everyone is different and no single approach to counselling will work for everyone. As such, we teach a wide range of methods, focussing on the practical side, meaning you can serve a diverse range of clients and meet their specific needs.
Here at Connect, we see ourselves as being a part of the community. We are active and successful in setting up placement opportunities for our students. Helping you to become the best counsellor you can be!
