Exploring Counselling Skills
Life can be stressful – either at specific times and events or when other life issues come along and it seems impossible to see a light ahead of us – we can struggle to know exactly why we feel the way we do.
Some basic counselling skills are vital for everyday life. Friends, family and often complete strangers can often offload their problems as it helps them to think clearer about issues. The response you give in these circumstances can make a real difference to their lives.
This course will give you the foundation skills and inside knowledge needed on this subject to help you give the right positive responses.
