COUNSELLING PRACTICE SHORT COURSE

Counselling skills are needed in many different situations, and this is a course that can set you on the right track to developing such skills.

Counselling happens both formally and informally. Professional counsellors may need a high level of formal training and experience; well beyond what this course can teach you, but counselling happens every day at levels below that. Ordinary people help friends and family get through difficult times. Youth workers, social workers, clerics and undertakers among many other professionals need to practice counselling in their day to day work.

Whatever your situation, this is a great course to start developing your counselling skills.
