Type of Event:
Have you found co-counselling helpful and empowering? Do you wish more people had access to peer support? Are you interested in helping to empower others by teaching co-counselling? Are you interested in making teaching co-counselling part of your paid work? If so, this course may be the course for you!
In this course you will learn and practice how to teach co-counselling to a group of people. Through a mix of group, solo and mentored study and practice you will deepen your understanding of co-counselling theory and practice, develop your own style and confidence as a teacher, and become part of a community of co-counselling teachers.
The training is suitable for those who have done the 40 hour introduction to co-counselling training, and wish to get experience of teaching co-counselling to others. You don’t need any teaching or counselling qualifications to do this course, although these may be helpful to you. What you most need is enthusiasm, commitment and some experience of doing co-counselling sessions.
The course will take place over 6 months between August - Feb 2019 and will involve the following:
A 2 day group training in London on 20-21 August 2019
Developing your own portfolio of teaching resources
Doing an apprenticeship with an experienced co-counselling teacher
Leading a short introductory workshop in co-counselling to a group
Having a co-counselling mentor to support you on your journey to teaching
Being part of a community of co-counselling teachers and apprentices
A combination of individual and collective learning
A peer-peer graduation day in February
Upon completing the training you will feel more confident and better equipped to lead/co-lead your own co-counselling courses.

A personal note from the Course facilitator:
'‘I have taught 85 people co-counselling over the past 2 years and have found this work some of the most rewarding I've ever had the pleasure of doing. It feels meaningful, boundary pushing, deeply needed, and appreciated. I would really love to support others who are interested to take the plunge and learn to teach co-counselling in their own style, and in a way that is financially viable for them. The world needs more co-counselling teachers. Would you like to be one of them?'' Kathleen Cassidy, 2019
