Introductory Courses - Listening and Counselling Skills

We have received some information regarding some courses that are being run 'Being There' during the autumn term and have been asked to pass on the details. The details from the email are set out below:

Network Counselling and Training will be running the introduction to listening and counselling skills course, Being There, during the autumn term.

The course is open to anyone who has an interest in working with people; no previous experience required. A small part of the content of this course is Christian in its perspective and, in addition to covering the same ground that any good listening skills course would address, we also include topics that will be particularly relevant for those working in a pastoral context.

It is suitable for anyone involved in any form of helping relationship – for example, nursing, teaching, support work, youth work or pastoral care – who wishes to develop their listening and communication skills. It is also a suitable introductory course for those who are considering training as counsellors.

There will be a choice of (a) a Thursday evening course, which will be delivered online, or (b) a Friday morning course, which will be run at our training premises in Filton, Bristol.

Thursday evenings (6.30 – 9.00pm) 7 September to 7 December 2023 (no session 28 Sept or half term 26 October)

Friday mornings (10.00am – 12.30pm) 15 September to 8 December (no session half term 27 October)

Cost £295, with the option to pay in one or three instalments.

For more information, please visit our web site where you can download flyers and booking forms.

This 12-week course will enable you to identify and develop the skills you already have, as well as to acquire new ones.

You can also book directly online, if you prefer. Links on the web site, also here (for Thursday) or here (for Friday)

Please do get back to me if you have any further questions.
