7 What Our Students Think My experience with PCI College has been a significantly positive journey to date. I am passionate about the field and work of Counselling and Psychotherapy and PCI has been the perfect vehicle for me to carry my academic and experiential endeavours. The staff and lecturers have a total dedication to the wellbeing of the students throughout their studies and the training available is of the highest standards available in Ireland. Johanne Kenny I rate my experience of training with PCI College not only as a 10 but also as one of my most enjoyable experiences of further education. I look forward to each weekend s training with enthusiasm, and I value the knowledge and experience shared by the tutors and the camaraderie of my fellow students. Kathleen Doherty..the team at PCI College make this a wonderful, worthwhile learning experience. This course covers a broad range of topics and areas in psychology and is the perfect stepping stone to further study in psychology. I found the experience and the standard of the college exceptional. Sarah Glynn Presented in a clear manner. Very informative and interesting. Enjoyed the group discussions & participation Rita McCabe The tutors were incredibly experienced in counselling and I found they treated us as trainees rather than students, which was very encouraging and gave you the freedom and confidence to build on what you were learning and how you were growing In each year the assignments became more challenging but in another way we had learned a lot of skills and developed an understanding of human nature and had the confidence to write what we really felt about a subject and how this might be in the counselling setting. Carol McNeill Dunlea Excellent tutors and course-work, made this course very enjoyable... I found the college had a lovely approach in dealing with students, and helping them to handle the pressure of completing the high level of college hours, assignments, workshops, client hours, personal therapy hours, and supervision hours required Jenny Hannigan Right from the beginning there was a friendly atmosphere; the tutors were approachable and the small class size helped me form great friendships. I love being in the classroom and interacting with the group and tutors, it is good to spend time with people who have common interests. It also helps that the tutors are all qualified counsellors themselves and all have experience of working with people which makes their lectures more interesting when they share their own experiences. Laura Porritt Shared experience, grounded examples, very knowledgeable with varied modes of teaching, loved it. Put a huge effort into each section, very much appreciated Marie O Connor I enjoyed this course immensely. It opened up a new vision for me and allowed me focus on who I want to be and what I want to believe. Our group was amazing and the trust we all had in each other was great and it enabled us to share our personal experiences. We had some great moments in the classroom. I would recommend it not only for those who want a career in counselling but for those who want to personally develop and take time out of their busy lives. Laura Farrell Excellent course,very informative and gain useful skills that one can use in every day life. Would highly recommend it to anyone. Geraldine Hanley The PCI College Team Page 7
