Course description

NCFE Level 3 Award in Counselling Skills and Theory:

This course is intended for candidates who need to develop their counselling skills further and to understand the theoretical roots of counselling for use in an occupational setting. Counselling skills can be applied to a wide variety of situations and are highly relevant to a range of occupations and professions where interpersonal skills are important. Candidates may be planning to return to work, looking for a change in career, looking for new skills or simply wanting to acquire and use counselling sills in a voluntary setting. Counselling theory helps to support and to "ground" counselling skill's practice by forming coherent models for understanding individual development and human interaction. For many, this will be a further step towards becoming a counselling practitioner.

The course is 50% theory, 50% practice and comprises of 4 units: Understanding different approaches to the use of counselling skills; Practising counselling skills; Working ethically in helping relationships and Understanding the importance of self-development in relation to helping others. Successful completion of this course would prove valuable to anyone considering applying for the BA(Hons) in Integrative-Relational Counselling.
