Ok here goes,
I have got into the University of Nottingham to study Humanistic Counselling, but my eyes had come across a Foundation degree in Drug and Alcohol Counselling at Stoke on Trent College.
Though I have already accepted the place at Nottingham, I haven't yet received the student finance decision yet.
I really wat to study both, but no one can do that, can they.
I'm just thinking should I go ahead with the course at Nottingham and forget about the other course...right now I do not have an idea and I did think I had in the last few weeks...
What sounds better to you guys?
Which sounds better? Humanisitic Counselling or Drug Counselling? Watch

I haven't a clue what humanistic counselling is, but drug counselling sounds really interesting, although is quite vocational in a way. If it's a one year foundation though, you could go ahead and do this, then continue with the degree (tell them you're deferring a year?) in humanistic counselling if you wish. I don't really know what I'm talking about though so don't take my word for it.
If you were to do the drug counselling foundation, what do you think you would continue to do after it? A diploma in drug counselling, go straight into employment..?
I know of some addicts who prefer their drug/alcohol counsellors to be recovering drug addicts or alcoholics themselves.

Humanisitc Counselling is a form of person centred counselling.
Yes I would continue with a diploma in drug counselling and then go into employment after that.
I had got advised from the University of Nottingham to call the BACP.
So I am going to that now and see what they say
