This one-year, part-time course is designed for adult students to gain the theoretical knowledge and practical skills required to practice counselling skills using the person-centred approach developed by the late Carl Rogers. It includes developing listening skills, nurturing self-awareness including the spiritual element of self and understanding the role and use of counselling skills in the workplace and beyond.
