Counselling Children and Young People workshops:

I created these courses in response to the need for thorough, ethical training for counsellors and trainee counsellors who work with, or would like to work with, children and young people (CYP), to improve the knowledge and competence of counsellors who are working with, or wish to work with, CYP.

The courses are also suitable for anone working with children who would like to improve their knowledge of ethical practice or counselling skills. The managing anxiety workshop is also suitable for anyone who would like tips on how to manage their anxiety.

As a starting point, I have used the BACP competencies, which give details of what is expected of those counsellors who wish to work with CYP. The courses feature topics and learning outcomes from the BACP curriculum for Introduction to Counselling CYP.

I have selected the main areas for counselling CYP, based on my experience working with this age group.

The workshops contain detailed content and will provide further links and suggested resources for continuing development.

Attendees will gain valuable information and practical advice to support their work with CYP, and will receive up to 7 hours of CPD and a certificate of attendance outlining the course content.

I have tried to keep the workshops affordable with the full day workshops £95 (if paid in advance, £100 on the day) and the shorter workshops £45 (if paid in advance, £50 on the day)
