Counselling Skills - with Melvin Thomas & Associates

with Melvin Thomas & Associates

“Listening is an art that requires attention over talent, spirit over ego, others over self”

True listening is a skill very rarely practiced in everyday communication. Most of us spend our time not listening, distracting ourselves in a myriad of ways from what the other is saying.

The term “active listening” refers to a fundamental set of attitudes and skills that can enable us to hear accurately and to share this understanding with the other person. If we can do this then we are well on our way to helping others to understand and help themselves.

This course is primarily designed to introduce people to these skills in the support of others. The course adopts a very practical way to learning and invites involvement and participation from participants in a series of experiential exercises.

Whether you’re a helper, parent, colleague, manager, friend, partner or an individual who maybe considering a career in Counselling this course is for you!
