Accredited Certificate in Counselling Skills with Young Adult Specialism – course info

Thanks for showing an interest in my Certificate in Counselling with a Young Adult Specialism Course.

I’ve decided to create a course which not only gives you great new learning and techniques, it also teaches you about the real job of counselling!

I’ve been doing the job for over 15 years now and in that time I have had many successes and some failures too! Now, I’m ready to share with you the nuts and bolts of counselling and especially using those skills for Teenagers and Young Adults

The course is designed for those who already have some knowledge of basic counselling and communication skills

The counselling aspects of the course and the skills we will be developing will be based on the Person-Centred Approach to counselling

The Course’s Qualification is Internationally Accredited and Certified by a Professional Body, the International Association of Therapists

This course is beginner to intermediate level. It is designed for individuals who wish to develop skills within their own framework, or as an introduction to further study in Counselling.
