 Course Aims.

To train experienced counsellors and psychologists to confidently contract to offer Person-centred couples counselling. This is an important area of training that is constantly in demand from EAP’s and couples themselves. A counsellor spending her/his training budget in this area is therefore likely to enjoy good returns on her investment. This training is unashamedly person-centred, which means that it will use person-centred theory as its primary reference point. There is very little theoretical writing, which is exclusively person-centred, on this subject. What writing and teaching there is, even by person-centred authors, tends to place more reliance on other theories, particularly systemic, than we are comfortable with.

This training is designed for those working face to face or online.
