The level 2 course is an introduction to Counselling. No previous experience is required or assumed. The course is 15 3-hour sessions. Each session contains some small group practice and some theory lecture. We practice basic communication skills, and learn about different theoretical approaches to counselling.
The course aims to help develop confidence and appreciate the importance of personal development. There are four units and written assignments to complete.
- Counselling skills
- Ethics in practice
- Counselling theory
- Personal development
Whilst there are no formal entry requirements, it would be valuable to be in an environment where you may use the skills you gain and have a strong interest in Counselling.
