The 'Counselling Skills Introduction Award CPCAB Level 2' course in Canterbury offers the opportunity for personal and professional development for those who work regularly with others, particularly in a supportive or advisory capacity.
This Counselling course will cover the ethical framework in which counselling takes place and enable you to gain an understanding and practice of basic counselling skills, such as listening and reflecting.
Successful completion of the course will mean that you will be able to:
- Identify basic counselling theories, practices and ethics and show how they can be used safely.
- Demonstrate improved listening and reflecting skills in your own dealings with others.
- Use initial counselling skills with a greater self-awareness.
How will I be taught?
The course will involve full learner participation and self-reflection. There will be personal and sensitive discussions in small and large groups, group activities and role plays in triads (groups of three) followed by observer feedback. You will be asked to write a weekly reflective journal.
Assessment is by portfolio and tutor observation of practical skills during the course.
What do I need to bring with me?
A4 Ring binder with dividers, notebook and pen.
What can I do next?
