To be awarded the Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills, learners are required to successfully complete 4 mandatory units:
• Unit 01 Using counselling skills
• Unit 02 Introduction to counselling skills theories
• Unit 03 Diversity and ethics in the use of counselling skills
• Unit 04 Counselling skills and personal development
Note to applicants: In this course you will be expected to talk about yourself in a classroom environment. As this is an introduction to the Counselling training you need to be aware that you will be expected to do a lot of self-reflection and this could result in highlighting things that have happened and impacted on your life. You need to think carefully before embarking on this course to ensure that it is the right course for you at this time in your life, as it will not be a place for you to have group therapy – it will be an academic/teaching course that will help you learn and develop counselling skills. Students will need to be prepared to seek outside help/college counsellor if it becomes apparent (or if the tutor advises) that they need to ensure their own emotional safety.
