Counselling Taster Session

This taster is recommended to you if you would like to improve your communication skills and increase your confidence in listening and responding to others, either in personal or workplace settings.

It can also be used to give you a better idea of what counselling training involves, and to help you to choose the right entry level for you.

The day will include a range of fun activities that give you an insight into what counselling is (and isn’t). You will meet like-minded people who share common interests, develop your own self-awareness, and practice effective listening and responding skills.

You will also look at blocks to effective, confident communication, as well as identifying appropriate personal and professional boundaries which are so important for continued well-being.

Entry Requirements

This session is aimed at adults who are aged 18+, other than that there are no entry requirements other than an interest in your own personal development, and a willingness to practice communication skills in pairs exercises…and have fun together.
