High Quality Training for Level 3 Counselling

In order to provide you with a first-class service and training experience, we aim to keep our class sizes small, up to 15 learners in a class, so you can be sure that you will be learning at a high, interactive level.

This in-depth training allows you to develop your counselling skills competently. It will enable you to learn how to manage a formal 30-minute counselling skills session, with a full contract and a suitable, sensitive and safe ending of the session.

There are four units of learning, which will develop you professionally and personally. Learners who carry out this level usually apply for jobs involved with helping others, for example a key worker or support worker. You can use this training to provide counselling skills sessions within your workplace, and it’s ideal for those of you who work with or manage people within your existing workplace. You must be 18+ years of age to carry out this course.
