Why Study Counselling Skills?

Counsellors are hired by people from all walks of life to help them overcome obstacles and deal with difficult situations.  Each and every person who consults with a counsellor is unique - as are their issues, their aspirations and their objectives.  Counselling is a complex and diverse field, which encompasses a variety of different types of counselling.  Examples of which include relationship counselling, behavioural counselling, youth counselling, grief counselling, career counselling, addiction counselling and more.  Contrary to popular belief, the job of the counsellor is not to provide direct instructions, or to offer simple solutions to clients’ problems.  Counsellors do not give their opinions or advice, nor do they prescribe medications. Instead, it is the counsellor’s job to empower each client with the confidence needed to overcome obstacle and find solutions to their issues.  For patient, empathetic and intuitive individuals with a genuine passion for people, careers in counselling come highly recommended.

Its very convenient, I have time to go through the materials and make the assessment when I have time next to work. I get feedback always within couple of days.
I get very useful materials, the course is really about the topic, very detailed and connected to reality.

I do like a part dedicated to the practice in your studying material, that prevents from a passive reading of the material and helps to apply a new knowledge right now or at least to try to do it. As well, it's a great technique to memorise new material, because I did remember my answers to your questions in the texts. I've just started my course so maybe later I can provide and share with you more my insights I'll discover.
