Course content

When you gain the certificate from this online Counselling Skills Diploma Course, you’ll know counselling concepts and practices and how to work with clients.

The Counselling Skills Diploma Course will help you begin your journey towards becoming a counsellor, by giving you the chance to earn a diploma certificate in counselling. You will be introduced to the core concepts of counselling, what the role involves and the skills used in and the importance of active listening.

One of the most important, if not the most important, aspects of being a good counsellor is the ability to build a relationship of mutual trust and openness with your clients and to establish a strong counsellor-client bond. Through this, both parties will be successful in helping the client to reach their goals. This course guides you through acquiring the skills needed to facilitate this, the importance of the first interview with a client, the tasks a counsellor should be mindful of when interviewing, and the concept of non-directive interviewing.

Further to this, the Counselling Skills Course outlines the personal skills that make a good counsellor. You will also learn important and essential theories on motivation and empathy that should be applied in counselling, to encourage success and further strengthen the counsellor-client relationship.

As a counsellor, you will work with people suffering from grief and bereavement. Through studying this course, you will learn to recognise and analyse the various ways in which people react to the loss of a loved one and how grief and the grieving person should be managed. You’ll explore the common stages of grief and gain an understanding of the symptoms of complicated grief reactions, which require a more in-depth level of counselling.

Other areas that you will find yourself helping clients with include stress, anxiety and depression. The Counselling Skills Diploma Course explains the two categories of stress symptoms (eustress and distress) and the issues and symptoms of depression and anxiety.

You’ll explore the process of recognising negative thinking and turning it into positive thinking and how positive thinking can be used to restore self-esteem. You’ll also look at an interview excerpt between a counsellor and a client with depression, which shows the use of a CBT approach and how this can aid the client.
