Counselling Skills (Intermediate) short course

hero

This workshop builds on the skills and processes developed in the Counselling Skills (Foundational) short course. In this two-day hands-on workshop, we will explore counselling from the perspective that we have an inner cognitive and emotional life that significantly effects how we live day-to-day as well as long-term choices made. From these understandings, we will explore processes and applications that can assist clients to become further empowered, self-aware, self-accepting and positive.

This course is designed for people that have some basic education in counselling approaches and/or are already working with clients in a supportive capacity and wish to extend their training and skills.

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

  1. Understand and demonstrate active listening skills and a person-centred approach
  2. Understand the process of the adaptive self on authenticity and applications when working with clients
