Counselling Course [Dip. Couns.] Most of us can counsel others ... we do it almost every other day. However, being a professional counsellor or counselling others as part of our pastoral duty in a vocation places us in a different situation. We, as a counsellor need to be able to survive the encounters and be able to identify problems and problem people. This course empowers you and enables you to do just that. You will learn through an introduction to counselling, interviewing techniques, listening techniques, problem diagnosis, life crises, behavioural disorders, depression, personality disorders, marriage counselling, bereavement, grief and loss, substance abuse, and a valuable self-knowledge. Graduates of this course include Church Ministers, priests, employers, managers, prison officers and policemen, and those embarking on the setting up of their own counselling consultancy.
Your student pack includes the necessary text together with a student guide and study assistance. In addition to the material, one-to-one help is available throughout the course by email
