Certificate in Working with Couples

This course is for those wanting to develop their practice in working with couples who may be new to this area or wanting to build on their existing knowledge and experience.

The tutor will cover a range of theoretical ideas and issues with a focus on practical application. The group will explore areas such as understanding the unconscious couple fit, working with domestic violence, sex or infidelity, couples who are in constant conflict, power struggles and the many issues that arise within this dynamic.

This course provides an opportunity to examine the above topics from both personal and practical perspectives.  It will give you a space to learn new techniques and when to apply more directional approaches in your work. You will be able to share your feelings, thoughts and practical concerns with peers and have the opportunity to reflect and consider what you may need to develop this area of practice. On leaving you’ll take away insights into your own process, along with practical tools and experiences which can be applied in your work.
