Introduction to Counselling – Level 2

This introductory course is aimed at anyone who is interested in learning more about what counselling is, and developing some basic counselling skills.

The course is accredited through Agored Cymru and is in two parts. Part One looks at the Egan model of counselling and ethical issues associated with practice. Part Two considers issues such as discrimination, sexual relationships and life experiences. Counselling skills will be integrated throughout both parts of the course.

Whilst this course does not qualify you to practise counselling, it will give you a good grounding in key counselling topics and basic counselling skills and will prepare you for further study at level three.
