Take a Counselling Skills course at Richmond

If you have always wanted to become a counsellor or just discover more about counselling skills generally, here’s your opportunity.

Join our new Counselling Skills course for complete beginners from January 2021, which is open to both students at Richmond and the general public and has been designed to provide an introduction to counselling theory, helping skills and the ethics of safely helping others through talking therapy.

Dependent on UK government guidance, Introduction to Counselling Skills will run from January to July 2021, three hours per week on Mondays, 4.00-7.00pm (UK time), at the University’s Richmond campus (Queens Road, Richmond upon Thames TW10 6JP), over 20 weeks.

No counselling experience is required.

This course will provide an excellent introduction to counselling, being delivered in the Richmond Psychology department by lecturers who are experts in both psychology and counselling, providing students with a wealth of insights into the two disciplines. Most counselling skills courses only offer training in theory and communication skills, however, Richmond completes the training by offering real business skills to help students learn how to create and develop their own private practices.
