Terms and Conditions for Level 5 Course in Counselling Children and Young People 2021 Online Summer School

Please read, print and retain for your records.

Allocation of places will be subject to Facilitator (Mary Clair Kelly) and Course Director’s (Carol Belsey) agreement. Their decision to invite a qualified counsellor to apply for the course, once an interview has taken place, and/or to accept a qualified counsellor to the course will be final.

Mary Clair Kelly and Carol Belsey reserve the right to cancel or postpone the course if minimum numbers of 10 participants are not reached. If cancelled a full refund will be made.

By joining the course and paying the deposit you are agreeing to our terms and conditions.

The course deposit of £300 is is non-refundable, except if the course is cancelled.

Please ensure you pay the course balance on time.

Alternatively, the course balance can be paid in instalments via a monthly standing order. Please discuss with Carol Belsey, Courses Director. 

The Course Director will not chase payments. It is each learner’s responsibility to ensure that their payments arrive on time. Failure to pay/getting behind with payments may result in learners being asked to leave the course.

Failure to pay the deposit and/or balance on time may see your place being denied and given to another counsellor on our waiting list.

If you wish to resign from the course at any stage please write to Carol Belsey, Course Director. The deposit is non-refundable at all stages of the course.

Each study day incurs a charge of £75 (above the £300 deposit). Therefore, on the day your letter/email resigning from the course arrives any excess money held by CB Counsellor Training on your behalf, already paid in full or by standing orders will be refunded to you, minus an admin charge of £10, until day 7. From day 7’s training day no refunds will be made and the full fee for the course will be payable and will be retained.

No refunds will be given for individual dates missed by a participant.

A receipt will be issued for the deposit payment and a second one once all the balance has been paid. Receipts will be sent by email. Please retain these receipts for your records. Duplicate receipts incur an admin charge of £10 each, paid before the duplicate is provided.

Those not reaching all the criteria for the course can be awarded a certificate of attendance, if they have attended 80% of the course, by CBCT if requested. This can be converted to the completion certificate from OCN London upon completion of all of the criteria, at a later date. Please see the Course guides for more details.

The Course guides will be forwarded to you 2 weeks before the course starts.

Those unable to attend 80% of the course will be awarded a certificate of attendance stating the hours attended, if requested, but will not be able to complete the course.

All learners are to ensure they are insured to work as Counsellors and Psychotherapists and have checked to ensure their policy covers working with those under 18.

We take your privacy very seriously and will only use personal information given above to provide the products, services and information you have requested from us or to administer your account.

All details will be destroyed once your training relationship with us comes to an end.


Please note: We will accept hours gained from 2nd August 2021 onwards. However, if you have not worked with Children and Young People before please do not start working with them until you feel the course has given you sufficient knowledge and confidence in your abilities for you to do so and you have the agreement of your supervisor and can make an ethically sound decision to begin to do so.

Please note that, if you are a member of the BACP, the Training Curriculums ask you not to begin working with C & YP until you have attended all of the course dates.

Overseas learners:

This on-line course is open to learners living overseas. Please note that we are a UK based training provider and are therefore governed by UK jurisdiction and will only be able to refer to UK Ethical Frameworks and Laws within our course.

Online Courses Via Zoom will not normally be recorded, unless for Quality Assurance reasons. Permissions will be sought from each learner before recording any section of the course. The course is offered as a live, interactive training. Participants will be sent joining details including a direct link and a password in the week prior to the first training day.

Recording of a part of or the whole of an event is not permitted as it will be seen as intrusive of both the participants and the staff of CBCT’s privacy.

You do not need a paid account for Zoom to access our training but it is wise to download Zoom before the training day and to familiarise yourself with it, if you have not used it before. Please ensure you have a strong enough connection to be able to use Zoom. No refunds or partial refunds will be given for poor or lost connection at your end of the Zoom connection.

If for any reason the internet fails at Mary Clair Kelly’s location, we will endeavour to get the event back on line as soon as possible. Lost time will be made up either on the same day or at a future date.
