Professional Training at Nexus

Nexus NI is proud to introduce three professional training courses for counsellors and other professionals working with survivors of childhood sexual abuse (CSA) and sexual violence, including one that is the first of its kind in the UK.

only laurelThe Nexus CPCAB Level 5 Diploma in Counselling Survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse and Sexual Violence has been accredited by the  Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB).Print


We are very excited to provide these new courses, Nexus has been working across Northern Ireland for over 30 years so we have drawn on our extensive first-hand experience in supporting survivors in their design and development.

Although the content of the three courses differs the fundamental aim is the same; to equip counselling and non-counselling professionals alike with the skills necessary to support survivors of sexual abuse as well as themselves. CSA is a very real, but hidden problem in Northern Ireland; courses like this help to support the victims and counsellors who are both impacted by the trauma, but also raise much needed awareness of the issue.

Two non-accredited one day CPD workshops are also now available and will be held on scheduled dates at Nexus in Belfast. These workshops can also be tailored to your team and delivered in a venue of your choosing.

ribbonThese two new CPD courses, one for counsellors and care professionals, and one for a wide range of non-counselling professionals and volunteers will raise awareness, help individuals understand how to manage disclosure in a professional setting, better equip professionals to support survivors of CSA and sexual violence in their professional roles and raise awareness of the most beneficial therepeutic responses to benefit survivors who seek support.

For further information on Nexus training see the additional pages on this site for each of the three courses on offer.
