You will gain a thorough grounding in the practical skills needed to be an effective counsellor. Encouraged to become a self-reflective practitioner, you will explore your feelings, attitudes and personal relational issues in order to evaluate and further refine your abilities.
You will enhance your understanding of social and cultural differences and values while analysing ethical dilemmas found in the profession. This will give you the ability to work effectively and sensitively with clients from a variety of backgrounds.
Even if you have limited experience in interpersonal and counselling practice, this course will provide you with the fundamentals needed to enter this rewarding field.
