It aims to provide those who wish to develop counselling skills in work-based and other settings with the skills and knowledge, which will enhance and support their work. It also provides the grounding for further training to become a professional counsellor.

The course leads to a Certificate in Counselling Skills award, which subject to acceptance provides access to the accredited Diploma in Psychodynamic Counselling and Therapy.

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.

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, for use of their counselling skills as well as within the context of their work.

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