But what is that work really like? Who might counsellors help and how? How might counselling training help you cope with your own everyday problems?
So you want to be a counsellor? will offer participants an introduction to the field of counselling, from initial qualities the profession requires to training, costs and employment opportunities.
This online short talk followed by the opportunity for Q and A will be useful for anyone who ever wondered about becoming a counsellor. Pop into our free talk to find out more about this colourful, dynamic and sometimes controversial profession.
Tickets will close at 3pm on Thursday 3rd February. Click here to book.
Participants will receive information that will be useful in helping them make informed decisions about counselling training.
