Not just for those looking to move into the counselling professions, this course is ideal for those wanting to help others in professional and voluntary settings. The basic skills of counselling and helping are essentially the same.
The course provides an exploration of counselling theories and aims to develop the qualities of empathy, non-judgmental understanding and active listening through experiential learning processes. With thought-provoking group discussions, group work and skills practice, classes also include an element of personal growth work, increasing self-awareness and the ability to reflect.
