Course Description

Being a school counsellor is different from being a counsellor who happens to work in a school. This workshop is for anyone thinking of applying or already starting to work as a school counsellor, including those still training to be counsellors.

What makes a school counsellor effective, both in and out of the counselling room? This workshop will present ideas about:

  • how the school counsellor becomes a whole-school resource, thinking systemically about the school

  • how counselling becomes a normal part of school life

  • counselling staff

  • managing peer support with students

  • responding to parents

  • collaborating with other services both in and out of school

Most importantly, this workshop will explore ideas about how counselling goes beyond ‘listening’ and ‘empathising’ to become therapeutically incisive with credibility in the corridors and staffroom.

Cost: £95 + VAT
