TQUK Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills

Unit 1

In this first unit we will be looking at counselling skills and personal development. This requires you to have the ability to reflect on your own practice and find ways to improve. Continuous improvement and reflection is one of the most valuable skills that a counsellor can have and will help you to access support when required to ensure you are consistently working to high standards.

Unit 2

Throughout this unit we will look at the support that is in place for counsellors. Although a counsellor is there to support service users, they must also be able to access their own support when required. Here we will look at how this is done and how to reflect on your own performance.

Unit 3

In this unit we will look at the main counselling skills that are often used in helping relationships. These skills are required by all counsellors and should be fully understood and developed throughout your career. Here we will discuss the boundaries that must be set in relationships as well as ways of agreeing objectives and strategising for the end of counselling sessions.

Unit 4

This unit, although fairly short, will require you to show your practical skills in your assessment. Here we will look at the counselling skills that we have already learned and put these into a simulated environment where you can demonstrate your ability to work with a service user.

Unit 5

In this part of the course we will delve deeper into counselling theory and look at some of the main areas of practice that you may wish to specialise in. These will be psychodynamic theory, person-centred theory and cognitive-behavioural theory. Throughout the unit we will look at the key elements of each of these theories and how to spot the main differences.

Unit 6

In this final part of the course we will look at diversity and ethics in counselling. This will require us to analyse ethical frameworks and strive to stop discrimination that can be present in the helping relationship.
