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.

Our next course takes places on the 31st August, 1st and 2nd September 2023 10-4pm. Please contact Natalie at cpd@noahsarkcentre.org.uk for more details and attach your CV if you are interested, and we will keep you posted as to when the course will held.

What participants have said they like about this course:

  • “The practical activities were essential and very helpful to reinforce the theory. The small group worked well for me and I was able/confident to express myself. Good energy in the group, Natalie and Alosa presented the course in an extremely professional manner and also involved each individual and encouraged group discussion”
  • “Friendly, detailed and energised approach …. Lots of detail – theoretical and practical – conveyed at a well-judged pace.”
