Basic Counselling Skills – 30 hours (Jan/Feb Online)

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.

There will be small group learning, exercises, practice and feedback as well as time in the larger group. We will draw from a range of theories with an emphasis on the practical, learning skills to take away and use.

The course is suitable for anyone who would like to expand their skills in relationships or want to take their first steps into the world of counselling.  It is also suitable for those where counselling skills will add to their professional roles such as human resources, teaching, coaching, parenting caring roles, management, pastoral care and those with a customer interface.

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 Diploma in Counselling or Psychotherapy Course.
