The Certificate in Counselling Skills Course is of interest to all those working with people in a voluntary or professional capacity as well as those interested in the advantages of such skills in their daily relationships.

It is a part time skills based Course with the emphasis on both the theoretical and practical aspects of counselling. The Course is designed to enable the student to explore and develop their counselling skills and learn from their personal experience.

During the Course students will be given the opportunity to assess their counselling skills and will be helped to decide in which direction they might wish to continue their training.

No written work is required but some reading is necessary and a booklist is provided.

The Course runs for one evening a week for two twelve week terms. The sessions aim to introduce the fundamental aspects of counselling and the skills required to facilitate the counselling relationship. A theoretical base is offered together with experiential exercises which complement academic learning.

In addition students are given the opportunity to practice counselling skills in groups and are encouraged to observe and contribute towards exploring the different components of the counselling relationship.

Students are helped to discover the opportunities open to them in the Community, (see Careers), for use of their counselling skills as well as within the context of their work.

Students who successfully complete the Course will be awarded a Certificate in Counselling Skills and will have an entry point to the Access Course (Module One of the
