Counselling Skills Training for Educators
Congratulations to our group of secondary school staff who have just completed the Counselling Skills course.
The aim of this course is to improve awareness, knowledge, understanding and practice of counselling skills. To enable school staff to promote the positive mental health and resilience of children and young people and to respond appropriately to concerns about their mental health. This is achieved through the use of specific communication skills and strategies taught on the course.
The course has been designed and delivered by Educational Psychologists. There was 30 hours of taught input and activities, as well as well as 21 hours of homework tasks over the entirety of the course. Please contact us directly if you are interested in attending future courses,
