If you have an interest in counselling and would like to find out more about the principles and practice of the three major approaches; Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, Psychodynamic and Person Centred Therapy, then this two weekend workshop is an ideal starting point. You can take the first weekend as a standalone course, which will provide a solid grounding in the three major approaches, or both weekends, the second of which will be an interactive and experiential counselling skills workshop.

During this immersive course you will develop your understanding of the basic principles of counselling, as well as coming to understanding of the differences between these three major core approaches. This will allow you to explore which approach suits your personality best and to inform your future choice. There is a strong focus on personal development and self-reflection and you will be encouraged throughout to increase your self-awareness. You may be thinking about changing career path, enhancing your existing skill base to offer more within your current discipline, or even simply interested in developing a more empathetic approach in your personal interactions – whatever your motivation this course supports you to take the first steps in this journey. 

The course is split into two weekends. The first weekend is dedicated to learning of the three most dominant counselling and therapeutic approaches; their introductory principles and the similarities and differences between them. We will provide you will a solid grounding in each discipline to help you identify which approach best suits your existing skills and talents. 

In the second weekend, an interactive and experiential counselling skills workshop will help you explore and develop the skills and personal attributes required of a counsellor, based on the approaches covered during the first weekend. You will have an opportunity to improve your interpersonal abilities, fine-tune your listening to others and increase your level of awareness to both yourself and the dynamic with others. 

The first weekend takes place on Saturday 15 February and Sunday 16 February.

The second weekend takes place on Saturday 7 March and Sunday 8 March.
