Overview

‘Listening is such a simple act. It requires us to be present, and that takes practice, but we don’t have to do anything else. We don’t have to advise, or coach, or sound wise. We just have to be willing to sit there and listen.’ (Margaret Wheatley)

Over the four weeks you will be able to journey through some of the basic skills, where the core concepts originate, the practice and the self-development that runs through all counselling skills and counselling training. Your tutor will bring in a variety of text books that may be of interest to you if you are wanting to progress to Counselling Skills Level 2 or 3.

This course does not qualify you to use counselling skills or provide therapeutic counselling for others.
