“"My course has been really empowering. It teaches skills that you can implement in your own life, as well as academically and professionally. I've developed a great sense of self-awareness and empathy, which support me in establishing good rapport with my students. These abilities have become natural to me, and I use them every day in my job."

MODULES & LEARNING

Focus on developing reflective, professional and ethical use of counselling skills in the work place. By understanding an organisation's ethical codes of practice, your own personal ethics and those of the British Association of Counselling & Psychotherapy you will raise your awareness of everyday ethical dilemmas at work and provides a background for evaluating them.

Critically reflect on the personal development aspects of what you have learnt previously and draw upon the relevance of experiences at work and at home.

Combine theory and practice using the interpersonal and counselling skills you have developed. You will apply the knowledge you have built up to a fictional character and demonstrate your understanding of the core theory models.

You'll develop skills that will help you analyse dilemmas and work effectively and sensitively with ethical issues such as social and cultural differences including diverse values, beliefs and attitudes of clients.
