This unique course is designed for those working in or looking to work in a helping, listening, or counselling role. This course is designed to develop your ability to establish a safe, trusting and helping relationship with another person by becoming a Reflective Practitioner.
COSCA Certificate in Counselling Skills is made up of four modules which are all offered at Edinburgh College. You will begin with module one and progress through the others over 14-15 months. During this course, you will reflect on your own processes and experiences and how these have shaped the person that you are. You will develop an awareness of how your own qualities, values, attitudes and personality affect how you are within helping relationships. You will attend Edinburgh College for individual skills development meetings outside the weekly session; making sure that the course meets your specific needs.
Please note although the title says Module 1 we offer all four modules which make up the certificate. The cost of this course is currently £325 per module (2022/23 prices. These may be subject to change) Each module takes approximately 12 weeks to complete. For further information please contact: email@example.com

The current Reflective Practice Module which forms part of the course is due to be phased out beginning in August 2022 and by completion in June 2023. However, the focus on Reflective Practice will continue to be a core aspect of the COSCA Modules 1-4.
