Course details:


Counselling skills can enable us to improve our relationships through better communication better listening and better understanding.  They also benefit us at work and can contribute to improving performance and wellbeing.


This course is aimed at those who are new to, or exploring, an interest in counselling.  The aim of the programme is to increase understanding of the counselling process, explore some of the theoretical issues and to practise the skills involved. This course is designed to help you to discover your potential and can provide a first step towards other careers.  We work in an experiential way to help you build your confidence in using counselling skills.  The course will include group exercises as well as pair and triad work. This can involve talking about yourself as well as listening to others.  Many people find that they have a changed view of life afterwards.  Confidentiality within the group is essential.


In this course you will have the opportunity to:

You will be required to keep a Skills Journal. You should allow about two hours a week for writing up and background reading.


This course is unlikely to be suitable for those exploring deep personal issues such as recent bereavement or whose emotional resources are already fully stretched.  Please talk to the tutor if you are unsure about fully participating in the emotional demands of the course. 


The Norwich Centre has a well established reputation for providing training courses and workshops, and the time seems right to return to delivering high quality introductory courses in counselling skills.
