Course description

Level 2 CPCAB Award in Introduction to Counselling Skills

Develop introductory counselling skills which can be used in everyday life as well as listening and responding skills. This course provides an insight into what counselling is about and what practitioner training involves. While the course is open to all, you will be expected to take part in small group as well as class activities.

This is designed to encourage self-awareness and self development, allowing you to better appreciate how your own sense of self can impact the helping interaction. You will be able to use these skills at higher level study or in a voluntary or employed role.
