Course Description
Due to the current and evolving situation with Covid 19, the delivery methods of this course are subject to change. There may be times when the lessons will be held remotely, via live video calls, use of our Moodle area, private social media groups etc. By signing up to the course you are agreeing to this wide range of teaching and learning approaches; the lessons will be held in classrooms where this is usually the case, when it is safe to do so, and may be switched to online as the need arises.

This course is intended for candidates who interested in progressing to level 2 counselling skills and from there to either life coaching or counselling. You will gain an understanding of both of these roles and the importance of active listening. After completion of this course you may progress to the level 2 counselling skills course. This will be dependent on your progress on this course and on tutor reference
Prosp Description
Comparison between coaching and counselling and other roles
• The meaning and importance of active listening
• The importance of self-awareness, reflection and feedback
• The impact of boundaries and judgments on safety when listening

Counselling courses include elements of self-awareness, personal growth and development, this will involve self-reflection and sharing of possibly uncomfortable situations undertaken within the confines of the classroom with boundaries and rules set by learners. You will also be expected to give feedback to peers. Due to the nature of the course all students are required to sign a confidentiality agreement at induction.
Although personal counselling is not a requirement at this level it is highly recommended and maybe specifically suggested to you if the tutor thinks it will enhance your support and development. Group and triad sessions are not a replacement for this.
