Students learn to identify and practice core counselling skills in helping interactions. The reflection on and practice of listening skills will also support learners to develop skills needed in daily life and at work. Development of self-insight and resilience are a core part of the course. Learning is experiential and practical. You will have time to practice newly learnt skills with peers in an encouraging and inspirational learning environment. Learners will undertake two units to complete this qualification which covers an introduction to counselling and development of skills associated with counselling and helping interactions.The tutor team includes working counsellor practitioners who have a passion to maintain the standards of the profession and encourage the best qualities within their students.
