Thursdays | 10.00am - 12.00pm: 3 November - 8 December
This is a 6 week course that provides an accessible and interesting introduction to the theory and practice of counselling. While the course is primarily theoretical, it also develops some awareness of the basic skills in counselling practice.
This is an introductory course, which is open to anyone interested in obtaining and learning how to use counselling skills in any area of life whether personal or professional.
It is ideal for those looking to gain self awareness, considering a change of career to counselling or working in a role where skills for active listening and dealing effectively and in a helpful manner with difficult or distressed people are required. It can also help parents and carers acquire powerful yet underestimated tools needed when being responsible for others.
You will get a good grounding in key topics in counselling, including its cultural and historical origins; different theoretical orientations; and the vital role of the counselling relationship.
