Introduction to Counselling Skills
Our next Level 2 Introduction to Counselling Skills courses will be held ONLINE
The online classroom will mean that you will still be with all of your peer group and you will hear and see them while being able to interact with them all in the same way as if you were in the actual classroom.
Your course tutor will put up teaching documents on the virtual screen in the same way as would happen in the classroom on a projector.
You will be able to work in small virtual groups for discussions and preparations to report back to the main group.
You will take breaks and have free time with your peers with no tutor present as you would in the actual classroom.
You will send in your assessment work via email and you will be able to show your prepared work on screen for your presentations etc.
It's different from an attended class but it is actually as 'classroom dynamic' as it could possibly be!

This course is an open entry level and requires no previous qualifications.
If you have no previous experience of working in 'care' related professions but want to find out whether or not working relationally to help and support others is for you then this could be the right course for you. The programme introduces the key concepts of basic counselling skills, an introduction to counselling theories as well as ethical issues as they relate to counselling. There is also a focus upon starting to explore personal development.
The course is taught in a facilitative manner and all participants are encouraged to value the contributions of others when discussing issues relating to counselling.
We do not expect any prior knowledge of counselling training although it is often the case that students who have experienced their own personal therapy are motivated to join the course with an aim of being able to utilise their personal experiences to help others. This is very welcome and often highly relevant.
We also welcome the participation of professionals in related fields of work that want to gain an understanding of what is involved in counselling training prior to undertaking our Level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills course.
Key Aims of the course programme
- To practice the application of counselling skills within an ethical framework
- To understand that sessions in which counselling skills are applied are professionally managed activities.
- To recognise individual differences and acknowledge and work with them
- To reflect on how the study of counselling theory and the use of counselling skills informs personal development and growth
