Counselling for Beginners — Part-time

Course outline

The focus of this course is to learn about the pioneers of counselling, their methods and the main core skills.

The course is designed to allow you to familiarise yourself with the main counselling approaches and practice counselling skills in a group setting.

On this course, you will learn how to participate in acting out role play scenarios in the roles of client, counsellor and observer, using basic counselling skills. You don’t need prior acting skills. The scenarios will be given to you so you will not feel the need to divulge personal matters.
