A 2 hour talk to help in navigating the minefield of different theories, training providers, costs and qualifications to qualify as a counsellor
For those wanting to qualify as accredited Counsellors and be registered on the PSA (Professional Standards Authority) voluntary government register for Counselling and Psychotherapy.

This 30 hour course is for those who have had no previous training in counselling skills or who those want to re visit the basic concepts of active listening. We will introduce ideas such as reflection, summary, paraphrasing and confrontation as well as Carl Rogers ideas around empathy, congruence and acceptance
This course is for those who have a basic knowledge of counselling skills and want to build their competence and confidence. Groups are kept small to allow a focus on the developmental level of each participant. These skills can be applied in a wide range of contexts.
This course is for those who have a competent level of counselling skills and want to refine these further, building on what they already know. We will deepen skills, explore working at depth and experiment with working with couples and working with groups.
