Course content

You will gain a thorough grounding in the practical skills involved with successful counselling, and you will be encouraged to adopt a self-reflective approach when evaluating your abilities - exploring your feelings, attitudes and personal relational issues.

You will enhance your understanding of social and cultural differences and values, and you will analyse ethical dilemmas found in the profession. This will give you the ability to work effectively and sensitively with clients from a variety of backgrounds.

Even if you have limited experience in interpersonal and counselling practice, this course will provide you with the fundamentals needed to enter this rewarding field.
