Counseling Skills

My Distance Learning College

Description

Counseling is essentially a lively, human and personal experience between two people. Therefore, it is a process which requires commitment of time and effort from both parties. The aim is for the counselor to help the client find their own answers and to become more in charge of their lives rather than less so; to be able to live their own life rather than be lived by it.

This course covers topics such as

  • Vocabulary of counseling
  • Listening skills
  • Counseling relationships
  • Motivation skills
  • Decision making
  • Grief & bereavement
  • Stress, anxiety & depression
  • Restoring self esteem
  • Eliciting self motivation
