Thursday 18 January 2018 - Premier Inn Piccadilly, Manchester

Download the full programme

In the UK counselling and careers guidance have long been regarded as separate career routes, indeed career development and management are often thought of as predominantly rational processes.  In reality careers practitioners have always relied on counselling skills in their practice, but a key question is - do we truly strive to work with the emotional content of what our clients are telling us (both verbally and non-verbally)? 

This course will challenge you to look at the counselling skills you use in your guidance interviews; encourage you to step outside your safety zone and develop advanced empathic understanding in your practice.
