The Counselling Skills Programme is suitable for anyone who wants to improve their interpersonal skills for personal development or to use in a helping or caring work role. This is an excellent starting point to train as a counsellor or psychotherapist.

The successful completion of all four Counselling and Listening Skills modules, leads to a Certificate in Counselling Skills from the University of Aberdeen.

'The decision to join this course has been one of the best I have made. I have thoroughly enjoyed the challenges and the subsequent rewards have been instrumental in building my confidence in my counselling skills. I have learnt so much during my time on this course both from the knowledgeable and supportive teaching staff and the learning environment created by my fellow students. Not only have I learnt about the topic of mental health and what counselling skills are in theory and practice, but I have also learnt so much about myself. I encourage anyone looking to develop their skills in counselling and their self-awareness to enrol on this course, you will not regret your decision'.
