This is a 4 week intense programme designed to address the growing interest in the counselling profession and its associated skills that are required in other helping professions. This course provides a good foundation as a ‘taster’ course for those thinking of embarking on a career a counselling.

The course is design to cover three parts that run concurrently and are overlapping; counselling skills, counselling theory and personal development.

Course Content

Counselling Skills: This encompasses attention giving, structuring, active listening, paraphrasing, reflecting, open ended questioning, and summarising.

Counselling Theory: The Person Centred Theory Provides the framework to underpin the deployment of skills and the foundation upon which you will develop your skills. This is also informed by Egan’s Three Stage Model of Helping.

Personal Development: You will be encouraged to make explicit, explore and examine your learning on the course and the influences that determine your experience of yourself, others and the world in which you live.

Modes of learning:

This will take the form of lectures, class exercises, the use of DVD’s, counselling skill practice sessions, peer and tutor feedback. You will also be expected to keep a learning journal where you will record what you have learnt about yourself; thoughts, feelings, behaviour, values and attitudes. The ethos underpinning this is idea of experiential learning.

By the end of the course you would have acquired the necessary knowledge and skills to effectively support someone through a helping process; be it in a professional, informal or church environment.

You will receive a certificate of attendance.

Delegates will also be expected to participate fully in all aspect of these different modes of learning.
