Now, more than ever, we need to make sure that we are kind to each other and that we can provide support to one another too.
After many years of being asked, I’ve decided to merge my two areas of expertise – Counselling and Course design to create an online course for those of you who want to learn exactly how I do what I do!
Not only that, the course will be accredited by an independent international body that specialises in accrediting holistic courses taught online.
The course, entitled “Acquire Develop and Practice Counselling Skills with a Young Adult Specialism” will be based on the first course I took in Counselling. The NCFE Level 3 Diploma. This course helped me to understand the mechanics and challenges of counselling and helped me fall in love with it.
I have added the Young Adult Specialism as this is the area I have seen the highest demand in. Further specialisms will include Mindfulness, Coaching, Personality Types and more.
There are many counselling courses available online, some better than others! Obviously this one is amazing!
This course is delivered via pre-recorded video with exercises and assignments added in. The course will last for 25 weeks. You will get email support from me and one 40 minute zoom session at a point in the course to suit you!
If that’s not enough, you will also get access to my online course aimed at Young Adults dealing with Anxiety for free! You can use this as a learning tool, a mentoring tool whatever!
I believe that counselling practice properly starts when you begin to use the skills you have learned. That is why the course involves lots of reflection and practice which you can upload for assessment. I also believe that learning should take place in a safe, non-judgemental and supportive setting, which is why I have decided to restrict each accredited learning qualification group to 15.
I will shortly be releasing dates for the beginning of the first group so if you want to register your interest, please do so here
As I re-join the Social Media World after a short, conscious break from information overload, I’d like to check-in with you.
How are you?
If no one has asked you that for some time, I’m asking you now and please feel free to answer below.
As we begin to emerge from our drastically shrunken Worlds, we may have become unaccustomed to the “live” check-in. It’s easy to hide behind a screen, portray a happy life for the duration of a Zoom call but as we begin to interact again (socially distanced of course!) we begin to experience the sharing of energy in real terms.
Here, the importance of making sure your fellow human is really ok, begins to shake us from our imposed self-centred existence.
It’s easy to rejoice in tales of courage, stamina, of health defeating disease, kindness, community etc. but there have been many untold stories. Stories which are not news-worthy or share-worthy. There is no massive drama, just sadness, fear and despair.
As the bearers of these stories start to mix with society, we must make an effort to feel their energy, their pain; and stand in it with them for a moment. We owe our fellow human that much.
And so, I ask again…How are you?
