Counselling Training Advice

Considering a Counselling Training is a big step with many things to consider.

Financial, emotional, personal, practical.  Much of this can only be learnt when you have already commited to a particular course.   

1 or 2 sessions of discussion about you and your motivations can be helpful to ensure you make more informed choices.

We could make sure you are aware of the following:

– The level of commitment and the demands on you

– Choosing the right modality/type of training

– What you want out of this course now and in the future

– Different routes through training.

– Trainings that are safer bets and trainings that might need to be thought about in more detail

– The balance between Theory and Experiential

– When you gain the qualification what will you actually be able to do and not do?
