Level 2 Certificate in Counselling

Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills

We have an exciting opportunity for people in mid-Wales and in Newport, looking for a qualification in counselling skills.

Starting on October 1st (Aberystwyth) and October 7th (Newport), we are running a brand new Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills, developed by New Pathways in order to provide an introduction to counselling skills. This will be run from our offices in Aberystwyth and Newport town centres, and will be the only course of its type available in the mid-Wales area. The content and materials have been developed by experienced, local, practising counsellors who have additional qualifications in teaching and assessing. This Level 2 qualification is recognised across the country and is pending accreditation from the CPCAB (you can find information about the level 2 on CPCAB’s website: CPCAB Level 2 Certificate).

This course is the perfect opportunity for anyone interested in upskilling their listening skills: whether you already work in a person-facing or client-facing role, such as Human Resources, Social Work, Holistic Therapies, or Support Work etc, and you’d like to further improve your job-related skills; or whether you’re looking for work or opportunities in client-facing jobs and would like a recognised qualification to add to your CV; or whether this is your first step to a career in counselling or other therapeutic service.
