Core Training

London Co-Counselling Training - Autumn 2019

English

Type of Event: 

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.

This course will be facilitated by Kathleen Cassidy who has led trainings across the UK.

The course will take place in a house within Wanstead in East London. It will run over the following dates and times:

To get involved in Co-counselling International (CCI) networks, you have to do a basic course which includes a total of 40 hours training and practice - and there's one coming up in Bristol soon.

Two weekends to remember!...KNOW YOURSELF!: CCI Core Training

English

Type of Event: 

'A wonderful experience, maybe even life-changing!  Fantastic..... I enjoyed the course, its challenges, its laughter, its thought-provoking ideas and its potential for the future.​Thanks again Richard.’
- Martin Davies, Leeds​

co-counselling
Come to the course and/or the taster and find out why I posted this image...

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.  Even if you decide to go no further with co-counselling after the course, I plan for the two weekends to be a significant experience in their own right. 

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 pair-work, 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.)

Richard Mills

Learn from a Psychotherapist: 

This course will be led by me, Richard Mills, BA, PGDIM, BSc, LGSMD, BACP Senior Accredited Counsellor/Psychotherapist and CCI Co-Counselling Trainer. I bring to this course my 25 years’ experience in sensitive, careful and attentive work with all sorts of individuals who want to work out how to live a fulfilling life.

More testimonials

‘…powerful, challenging and exciting… an excellent and inspirational facilitator.'   
- Rosalind Ashling Perth

‘…he also had us laughing and celebrating what's good about ourselves.’  
- Tracy Shippey, York

 

‘…sensitive observation, precise communication, warmth and humour.’   
- Alan Carver, Leeds

'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.'
- Martin Davies, Leeds

‘You were an easy going facilitator that enabled me to feel at ease throughout the training. Your sense of humor allowed me to bring clarity and focus to the issues I found most challenging. For this I am most grateful.’ C.C., Leeds
Know Yourself! CCI Core Training

'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'

- Joanna Klopotek, Leeds

"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." 

 - Paul Musgrove, Leeds
