The COSCA Counselling Skills Certificate is 120 hour introductory qualification in the use of counselling skills, awarding 40 SCQF credits at SCQF level 8.
It enables participants to practise and develop effective listening and support skills while gaining an overview of the main ‘approaches’ to counselling (person-centred, psychodynamic and cognitive behavioural).
The course covers the ethics that underpin counselling, as well as a framework for guiding interactions. The course is delivered by The Spark, a national relationship counselling agency with over 50 years of experience of supporting people and providing training.
