ONLINE – Certificate in Advanced Counselling Skills – 30 hours

Enhancing your Counselling Skills at all levels online

The vast majority of us were wholly unprepared for a global pandemic. Within the counselling and psychotherapy profession most practitioners have had to learn new skills very quickly to manage the transition to working online.

To support students and practitioners we have decided to offer our three tier counselling skills courses (30 hours each) online for those wanting to learn counselling skills for the first time ( Basic) or enhance their existing learning ( Intermediate) and for those wanting to hone their skills and begin to consider couples and group work (Advanced).

The aim of these courses is to enhance your skills and to learn to apply them in a virtual setting and face to face.

Advanced Counselling Skills

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.

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 either online or face to face.

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