KAPC started in 1990. It grew out of a sponsored counsellor training programme and was formed because a specific need of providing professional support for counsellors was identified.
KAPC responded to the demand for all kinds of counselling services. We grew exponentially and now provide the full range of services to promote professional counselling.
Many of our first activities were research projects that focused upon providing counselling services and training. We also concentrated upon young people and their particular needs.
We began with a certificate course and this was so successful that people requested a diploma course. This has led to the development of a full range of courses that begins with certificate and graduates through diploma, higher diploma, Master’s Degree to the PhD programme. We design and regulate all of the courses with the exception of the PhD. The Master’s Degree is validated by Manchester University in the UK. It has been going on since 1999 and hundreds of students have graduated. The PhD programme is taught by Manchester University staff who come to Nairobi.
