Person-Centred Counselling Certificate

Requirements

  • This course will cover the fundamentals of counselling and requires no previous experience.

Where you are looking to work as a counsellor, strengthen personal and professional relationships, or add a valuable skill to your CV, counselling skills are essential for forming meaningful bonds with other people.

This course will teach you the fundamentals of counselling. We will use the person-centred (also known as client-centred) approach developed by Carl Rogers to empower others to find solutions to their problems and help them move forward.

The person-centered approach places the client’s experiences at the heart of counselling. By helping people to develop greater self-awareness and self-acceptance, they are able to feel positive about themselves and find ways to grow and develop as a person.

This course is suitable for those who are new to counselling, or those with existing counselling skills that are looking to understand the person-centred approach. We will cover:

  • What counselling is and how it works
  • What skills do counsellors need?
  • How to use the person-centred approach
  • Self-concept, self-esteem and human psychology
  • What the core conditions are and how to use them
  • Counselling skills including listening, reflecting, summarising and questioning
  • Working as a counsellor

You will learn through a variety of ways including video lessons, reading, reflection exercises and multiple-choice quizzes.

On completing the course, you will earn an accredited certificate in person-centred counselling skills.
