Overview

‘One of the factors that make Counselling special is the quality of helper listening, which is developed as a result of training.  This listening involves attending to what the client means to say, as well as what [they] are saying.’  (Hough, 2014: 14)

The Counselling Skills Diploma is the gateway to Counselling Training.  During the course, we will look at how listening is the key to everything we do as humans. You will be able to develop your use of many other counselling skills and work with your peers to use these.  The course will take you through a brief history of the development of counselling theories and their implications on modern practice.  We will also spend time discovering ourselves.

This is a very interesting and stimulating course, it is challenging in terms of personal development work.  The course is either pass or refer, to pass you have to demonstrate competency of all the units.

Modules

There are five mandatory units that are covered throughout the course

  • Counselling Skills
  • Counselling Theory
  • Working Ethically
  • Diversity
  • Personal Development

Entry Requirements

  • You must be over 18 to apply for this course, however, it is better suited to students who have life experience to draw on

This also gives you the right to practice as a Counsellor.  All of these courses are two-year part-time courses.  From here you can progress to Degrees in Counselling.

If you don’t hold a first degree but want to follow a University route, then you would progress to a two-year part-time Level 4 Diploma in Counselling Skills, then on to the HE Dip in Therapeutic Counselling.  (total four years part-time attendance then qualify).
