Add Couples Counselling to your practice with this 7 day course which is designed to help you work safely and effectively with couples.
This course will suit anyone who already has a basic understanding and experience of the counselling process and is looking to extend their knowledge and experience of working in the interesting, demanding and fascinating world of couples counselling. It will not only build on your counselling knowledge in general but also on the practical and theoretical aspects of working with the couple dynamic.
