Course Description

  • The Certificate is designed to give a thorough understanding of the basic counselling skills, as well as opportunity to practice and develop these skills with peers.
  • These skills will then form the basis of improving relational skills in many situations – with friends, family and colleagues.
  • The course also gives insight into counselling as a career, though the skills being developed here are useful in more general settings too.
  • We examine and enhance skills such as demonstrating empathy, active listening, reading non-verbal communication and body language, asking open questions and being reflective.

It is open to anyone who would like to enhance their active listening, capacity for empathy and understanding of others, relational skills, understanding basic human motivation and communication patterns.
