Course Description

Counselling skills help us to communicate effectively and relate better to the people we are talking to, thus enabling us to develop healthier relationships.  These skills can be used in all our relationships, whether in our job roles or in our personal lives.  Through this course, you will develop an increased awareness of your relationship to ‘self and others’ and understand more about the nature of relationships.

The course will focus upon:

  • listening skills;
  • recognising and understanding verbal and non-verbal communication;
  • reflection;
  • questioning skills;
  • empathy and warmth;
  • giving and receiving feedback.

Please note that a minimum of 10 students are required to run this course.
