2022 Top 10 Counselling Courses

Even before the additional stressors brought about by the pandemic, 1 in 6 people in the UK are found to have had a mental health problem according to the Adult Psychiatric Morbidity Survey 2014. Meanwhile, Deloitte estimates that poor mental health costs UK employers a staggering £42 - 45 bn each year.

As such, managing employees' well-being will be near the top of many managers' concerns. In this scenario, the demand for counselling and psychological help is likely to increase in the foreseeable future.

We at findcourses.co.uk have seen a recent increase in overall interest in healthcare, social care and mental health training courses. Perhaps you are one of those who are considering how you can help and support others. If so, counselling training courses are a great way for you to develop the required skills to support the well-being of others. You can choose from online counselling courses or you can opt for in-person classroom counselling courses - whichever work best for your lifestyle and learning style.

The topics you can learn from counselling training programmes include various counselling theoretical approaches, interview and active listening techniques, and how to facilitate helpful interactions.
