Introduction to Counselling Skills

Counselling skills can be useful in daily life, whether in our work supporting others or just listening to a friend in distress. They help us communicate effectively and enable us to relate better to the people we are talking to.

In the course you will begin to understand and practice basic counselling skills such as

  • improved listening
  • reflecting both of yourself and others
  • increased self-awareness

There will also be an introduction to counselling theories, ethics, and tools to become a more skilful helper.
