The Introduction to Counselling Skills is a three day standalone course to introduce the basics of counselling skills. Whilst it is a pre-requisite for those entering the COSCA Counselling Diploma, it is open to all and recommended for anyone considering counselling and psychotherapy training. The primary aim of the course is for participants to understand the theoretical base for core counselling skills through experiential learning and to be able to relate these concepts to Transactional Analysis practice. The course is offered by Physis Training as a stand alone coure and/or as a component part of training that meets COSCA’s requirement for counselling skills training as a pre-requisite to entering for the Physis Training COSCA diploma course.
On completion of the three day course participants will:
