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 practise. 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.
The Foundation Certificate is a one-year, part-time course run over a number of weekends (or for part of a weekend) from our training centre in Clapham and is open to those who are considering a career in counselling or those who wish to develop their interpersonal and communication skills. The course fee is £1850.00.
