Counselling skills certificate
An introduction to counselling skills, this course teaches techniques and skills for improving relational abilities. These include demonstrating empathy, active listening, open questioning, and self-reflection. The course is held on Tuesday evenings over five weeks and is designed to be interactive and participatory rather than taught. Students will be tested through a ten-minute role-play of a client/counsellor scenario and will need to demonstrate an understanding of, and competency in, a number of skills explored throughout the course.
This is a fun and engaging course, designed to help improve our ability to communicate and understand communication from others. It is suitable for those looking to enter a career in counselling (though this is not a counselling qualification) and wanting to start training at the beginning, or for those who want to use the skills to enhance their work or life relationships.
The course is delivered by qualified and experienced counsellors and psychotherapists who have many years of delivering this and similar workshops to students, therapists and the general public.
