The Foundation Certificate in Counselling

The Awareness Centre’s Foundation Certificate in Counselling provides a training opportunity in which students can learn about, explore and experience first-hand the field of counselling.

The course provides a solid theoretical and practical introduction to counselling and further provides opportunities to put this knowledge and skills into practice. It focuses on the development of a range of interpersonal skills and relationship building to attend sensitively and appropriately to the needs of others, whilst establishing and maintaining clear professional and personal boundaries. Self-awareness and personal development are vital components of the training. The course aims to facilitate these through personal and professional development activities, counselling skills training and theoretical input.
