The aim of this course is to help you live autonomously, creatively and in touch with your emotions, uncovering hidden parts of yourself. Co-counselling challenges the view that some feelings are taboo and that you should not have them. It can help you come to terms with your past and your present, so that your feelings have less of a grip on you. This is a powerful opportunity to develop self-awareness, authenticity and personal strength.
The course covers the whole co-counselling syllabus and is a complete training in the CCI Core Training (also referred to as 'Fundamentals of Co-Counselling'. After successful completion of the course you can use the skills in pairwork, groups, workshops and at CCI co-counselling events worldwide.
(Important Note: it's important to be physically comfortable when doing co-counselling, so if you need to sit on a chair that's absolutely fine.)

'A wonderful experience, maybe even life-changing! I enjoyed the course, its challenges, its laughter, its thought-provoking ideas and its potential for the future. I met some great people in the group. It opened my eyes to a new way of working on self-development - truly democratic and self-empowering.
Richard introduced us to the concepts and we learned through trying things out in a supportive, friendly environment. The basics are simple to grasp and there is plenty of scope for reflection and discussion around practice sessions.'

'All 5 days of the co-counselling course were thoroughly engaging (!). Richard's playfulness and open mindedness made me realise that working through issues (stuff) doesn't have to be depressing or frightening. There was lots of gaiety brought about through playing games. I feel that the course allowed me to greatly improve emotional fluidity and learn techniques that I can apply independently thereafter, so in a way the benefits are still to come (!) depending on how I use the tool'

"Just wanted to say thanks for sharing that part of yourself with the group, it was shocking, but in a good and memorable way. (My issue) seemed a bit insignificant afterwards... But I acknowledge you shared something very personal and I appreciated that. People really do have a lot of issues, your two classes have been great for me, so thank you."
