Ideal for those who want to refine, refresh or extend their skills further, our third level counselling skills course will introduce you to advanced ways of working and approaches for specific client groups.
Building on your current skillset and experience, we’ll give you the opportunity to explore different frameworks for client/employee interactions. Working with fellow students in breakout sessions in a highly supportive environment and with constructive Tutor feedback, you’ll explore one-to-one and group work. Together, we’ll look at the latest approaches and how you could apply them to your practice or work challenges.
