This is a short, intensive weekend course designed to give people a taste of counselling skills used within any helping relationship. The course is designed to introduce counselling skills to those who have an interest, or who would like to extend and develop their existing listening skills.
Participants tend to be those who seek to develop the use of counselling skills in their working or personal relationships, or who are already using them within their working role, but would like to develop them further.
Aims of the Course:
The aims of the course are to develop a deeper understanding of active listening as one of a number of helping interventions, and to practise basic counselling skills with the aim of improving understanding within any helping relationship. Course members are encouraged to engage in the learning process by taking part in exercises and discussions. The knowledge and resources of the group are developed and used. The course tutor acts as a facilitator to develop a supportive atmosphere of enthusiasm, trust and learning for the group.
The course will cover:
• Definition of counselling and its relation to other helping activities
• Building effective relationships and developing empathy
• Introduction to Person Centred counselling
• Developing and practising active listening skills
The course is offered as a 15 hour weekend course.
