Counselling Skills : 2 day Course 12 hours CPD
This is an introductory course, open to all who are interested in learning about the basics of counselling skills and is also useful for those just interested in learning more about themselves.
You will be introduced to using counselling skills in a helping relationship whether that be in a school, workplace or counselling room. Help-seekers are therefore enabled to become less distressed and to lead more satisfying lives.
Delegates will explore interpersonal communication, personal development issues and the application of theory to practice. You will be looking at the basics of theory and approaches including empathy, congruence and unconditional positive regard. You will develop skills such as active listening and reflection through developing self awareness and self reflection.
While on the course, you will also look at knowing what your role is, and, as a result develop good and safe boundaries and your counselling skills within the work context.
