The Counselling Children & Adolescents - Level 3 Course is designed for people who wish to gain an understanding of the role of a Child and Adolescent Counsellor and will help students to gain a good understanding of how to counsel children and adolescents in general day to day environments.
There are a wide range of factors that effect children and adolescents and this informative course is designed to cover some of the main issues.
In many ways, counselling for children is very similar to counselling for adults as both depend on the building of a trusting relationship.
On successful completion of the course students will receive an accredited Level 3 Certificate Award and a Distance Learning Diploma.
