Advanced Counselling Skills – 30 hours

(Current Link Centre Students – Please contact the office direct to book this course.)

This 30-hour advanced course is for those who have a good level of counselling skills and want to continue to develop a richness, depth and flexibility in their skills. We will focus on advanced skills including further exploration of the transferential relationship, ethics and levels of confrontation.

Participants will be introduced to skills when working with couples and with groups and how this differs from working one to one. We will experiment with these different contexts together and participants will have a chance practice working in these different ways in the group.

Each course is kept small to enhance the learning with an emphasis on learning from each other. There will be small group learning, exercises, practice and feedback as well as time in the larger group. Sessions will be tailored to the needs of those attending. We will draw from a range of theories with an emphasis on the practical, learning skills to take away and use.

Recognition: A certificate will be presented at the end of the course. Students who complete the course may apply to attend The Link Centre’s Counselling Diploma or Psychotherapy Course.

Course Delivery: We are planning for this course to be run face to face at our training rooms at Plumpton College, East Sussex.  In the event of Covid restrictions we may have to transfer it to an online format using Zoom.
