As a society, we’re experiencing a rapid and unprecedented rise in mental health problems, with a growing number of people feeling unable to cope with life’s challenges. This has created a shortage in trained counsellors, at a time when we need to offer support to those in need.
By studying our A Taste of Counselling course online, you can be part of the solution to this widespread issue. Through engaging online materials you’ll gain an introduction to key skills, as you explore how professional counsellors approach and resolve particular situations. You’ll also reflect on the personal qualities that counselling requires.
As a counsellor your primary role is to act as an unbiased, non-judgmental facilitator who enables others to explore their feelings in a constructive way. This course offers a series of case studies, through which you can explore and reflect on how you’d respond to different scenarios, in comparison to expert advice. It provides a great introduction to this fascinating area of work and a first step towards gaining a professional qualification.
If you enjoy helping others, are good at listening to and empathising with people – then our counselling courses offer a flexible way to develop your knowledge and skills in this field.
A Taste of Counselling will take you on a journey that highlights the important role of counselling in today’s society. You’ll begin by looking at why we need counselling and what objectives it aims to achieve. Then you’ll focus on the key role of feelings and how, as a counsellor, you’ll need to find different ways to relate and react to complex emotions. Finally, you’ll consider how counsellors facilitate change in order to help their clients to find a resolution.
This course is ideal if you:
Unit 1: Counselling and counselling skills
Unit 2: Focus on feelings
Unit 3: Change – a risky business
