In this 40 hour course you will learn and practice the 21 core techniques of peer to peer counselling (co-counselling).
Upon completing the training you will become part of a local, national and international network of co-counsellors with whom you can continue regular co-counselling sessions. Here are some quotes from people who have recently completed co-counselling trainings.
''This course has been challenging and important for me. It has opened up a whole new world of possibility in terms of what counselling is. i loved the reciprocal nature of the course and found it much more useful than traditional counselling'.
‘‘Within a 10 minute co-counselling session, I was to my surprise able to access the buried grief about my dead father, something that was previously not possible in a £75/h therapy sessions.’
''The quality of Kathleen's teaching was fantastic, and the course was enhanced by the regular support by teachers with over 20 years' experience. I got a lot out of the techniques almost immediately, and think co-counselling (as well as advocating independence and self-reliance) offers a route to important experiences that might take months of therapy.''
Practicing co-counselling will empower you to become your own leader and relate honestly and with compassion to yourself and those around you. Co-counselling can also be thought of as relationship counselling - it's about learning to nourish all relationships in our lives; from our relationship with ourselves, to our relationships with friends, families, lovers, colleagues, and with the world at large.
