The aim of this programme is to develop learners’ knowledge and skills in the area of counselling, this is a short introductory course in preparation for our extended course that takes place in September 2023.

Students develop insight and appreciation of the process, theories and skills essential to counsellors. It is aimed at those who may be working in areas which require such skills, those who are interested in personal development work and considering undertaking a formal professional qualification.

  • Develop knowledge of the counselling process and the skills involved.
  • A central focus on reflective listening skills
  • Learn and practise mindfulness

Learners will be introduced to basic counselling skills, and fundamental theories underpinning both counselling and psychotherapeutic practice. The theory is interwoven with practical applications intended to increase awareness of interpersonal communication, self-awareness and personal development. This course does not lead to a professional qualification in counselling.
