Counseling Children & Adolescents

My Distance Learning College


Counselors help the client find their own answers and become more in charge of their own lives rather than less so; to be able to live their own life rather than be lived by it.


With educational establishments looking to provide professional, in-house counseling for their students, there are ever increasing opportunities for counselors who are able to relate to young people in an understanding and appropriate therapeutic environment.

This course covers topics such as

  • The counselling relationship
  • Destructive relationships
  • Communication skills
  • Dysfunctional families
  • Child development
  • Educational psychology
