Who is it for?
The course is aimed at those who use or want to develop counselling skills in a variety of settings. The course offers you the opportunity to identify, understand and evaluate key elements of the main theoretical approaches to counselling and practice and develop a range of interpersonal and counselling skills.
On completion of the course you will be aware of the skills required to initiate, maintain and conclude a counselling skills interaction and integrate these into your chosen setting. The course provides a nationally recognised qualification in counselling skills to those who complete it successfully. Completion of this course does not guarantee progression to the Level 4 Diploma in Counselling.
This course may be eligible for a 19+ Advanced Learning Loan. You must have completed a Level Two Certificate in Counselling Skills to apply.

The course is also open to those who may be interested in using counselling skills in a voluntary setting.

If you are currently studying with us at Level Two the taster and group interview will be conducted towards the end of your current course.
