Level 2 Award in Introduction to Counselling Skills

Training Date: 11 May 2018

From Friday 11 May 2018 – 151 Dale Street.

This six-week course leads to a nationally regulated qualification awarded by the Counselling and Psychotherapy Central Awarding Body (CPCAB), the only Ofqual approved awarding body to specialise in the field of counselling and supervision.

The course runs for six weeks until Friday 22 June 2018 (no class on 15 June), and include 30 guided learning hours (6 weeks x 5 hours per day). You must be aged 16 or over to be able to take part.

This qualification is intended for candidates who want to:

  • Learn basic counselling skills (listening and responding skills) in helping roles
  • Find out more about counselling (this qualification won’t teach them to be a counsellor, but may help them decide whether or not they want to train as one)
  • Improve professional and personal relationships

This assessed course provides an introduction to some of the knowledge, attitudes and skills related to counselling.  The course will not make you into a counsellor, but will enable you to begin to develop a basic ability to listen and respond sensitively and effectively to the emotional needs of others.  Growth in personal self-awareness is essential to this process, and all counselling courses aim to facilitate this.

The course will introduce you to some different counselling theories and to counselling processes.  It will explore what is and is not counselling, where its use is appropriate and the basic ethics and responsibilities involved.  The course aims to help you begin to apply your learning to your own situations.
