Description

Counselling Skills (Foundational)

This two-day introductory course is aimed at individuals who are either: 1) currently working in a role assisting growth and development in others and would like to further develop their skills, or, 2) interested in learning more about counselling and potentially looking to take the first step towards a new career.

In this program, participants will learn the core counselling skills required to become effective in assisting clients to build strengths and resilience, and strategies for positive change. Through hands-on exercises and supported role-plays, students will experience and get to apply the knowledge, processes and core skills required to become an effective ethical counsellor.

Participants may wish to build on the foundations developed in this workshop, and enrol in our Counselling Skills (Intermediate) short course.

Please note, this course does not qualify participants to work in a professional setting as a counsellor.
