Synopsis

This course provides students with a thorough understanding of counselling processes and practices. It includes a specific focus on practical skills, based on counselling theory. Students will also develop their ability to plan, structure, and manage a counselling session, including attention to ethical and contextual issues affecting the client and therapeutic process. Because there is a concomitant focus on the nexus between the therapist as a person and a professional, the course also emphasises introspection, reflective practice, and professional learning and growth.

This course contains a mandatory four-day residential school and 10 hours of mandatory online synchronous workshops.
