Counselling Skills for Non Counsellors training

Do you or does someone you know work in a supportive role?

Are you required to offer emotional support to others, discuss sensitive issues or have difficult conversations? 

We are all aware that undue stress is being put on staff, who may feel they are not trained or qualified to tackle many of the emotional or mental health problems that come up in their working lives (and at home).  

Relate can help you, your staff, your colleagues or your service users to develop useful counselling skills, interview management techniques and enable positive change. 

The next course is being held over 3 Tuesdays– 7th, 14th & 21st November 2017 - at Maidstone Community Support Centre.  

The cost is £225 pp.

Successful completion of this very popular course can also provide access on to further training. Early booking is advisable as numbers are limited and places are filled on a first come, first served basis.   

For further details and a booking form, please contact:
