If you are already in a helping role or wish to develop yourself as a helper, listener or as a counsellor in the future, then the COSCA certificate is the perfect theoretical and practical course. It will allow you to develop the ability to establish a safe, trusting and helping relationship with another person by becoming a Reflective Practitioner.
You will reflect on your own processes and experiences and how these have shaped the person that you are.

You will come to the College for individual skills development meetings outside the weekly session too making sure that the course meets your specific needs.
