Frequently Asked Questions

Am I automatically eligible for registration with the HPCSA once I have completed all the courses?

No. Only qualified healthcare workers can register with the HPCSA. Our courses are in addition to tertiary psychology studies, and are necessary if you would like to specialise in Logotherapy within your practice. Our training is not a degree course, nor does it replace full, professional training as a psychologist.

Must I complete a course within a certain timeframe?

No. There is no time limit on courses you have enroled for and the courses do not expire. After you have completed a course you will still have access to the course material for future reference.

What qualifications do I need to register for a course?

You do not need any formal qualifications to enrol for Logotherapy for Optimal Living or Basic Training in Logotherapy. However, the Practical Learning Path courses are progressive, so students must first pass the Basic Training in Logotherapy before continuing onto the advanced courses.

Can Logotherapy be applied in life coaching or in business organisations?

Yes! Logotherapy's application ranges from the classical psychology fields to those of life and business coaching. This includes human resources in the corporate environment.

What is the relationship between Unisa and VFISA?

Unisa previously offered us added infrastructure for training the Advanced and Diplomate courses. Since 2021, VFISA has offered its own internationally-accredited advanced courses for meaning-centred counselling and coaching for mental health professionals and high-ranking educational and corporate executives.
