Counselling Children and Young People (5-15 years)

This is an intensive package of training for counsellors who are interested in counselling children and young people (focus on 5-15 years age range). This course is open to both qualified and trainee counsellors – we expect participants to have had some counselling experience. The course will run over 3 days and attendees will be expected to attend all days.

The course will primarily be experiential and will cover the following key themes; getting in touch with your own child, child development, attachment theory, contracting and safeguarding, working in different settings. Much of the training will focus on working therapeutically with flexibility and vitality through creativity and play.

The course will be delivered by Alosa Kaimacuata and Natalie Wilkins; both with extensive experience of counselling children and young people at the centre and in other settings.
