This Certificate level counselling course has been developed in line with established counselling skills qualifications, and it offers over 200 hours of training, delivered over 35 weeks (during term-time). The course offers an in-depth exploration of the helping relationship, and is ideal if you have a keen interest in supporting others, want to use counselling skills as part of your paid or voluntary work, and may wish to progress into training to become a qualified Counsellor. On this course, you will participate in group discussions, pair work, group work, and practise counselling skills, and you will be required to give and receive feedback, reflect on your own learning, and complete and submit the written work. You do not need any previous knowledge and experience in counselling skills to apply, yet we do ask for an openness to personal development and change, a willingness to participate in the course, a willingness to listen and respond to others, and the ability to express yourself clearly – verbally, and in your written work.
