Our ‘Extend your Counselling Skills’ course, takes you deeper into the intriguing world of human relationships and how to help people to bring about positive change.
Drawing on techniques used by professional psychotherapists and counsellors, you’ll learn more sophisticated approaches and new skills designed to help you become a more confident counsellor, communicator or people manager. You’ll be encouraged to try out new techniques with fellow students at every stage, enabling you to learn in a safe, supported space and to take practical experience away with you.
