An online virtual 8 hour Relate workshop (delivered over 2 hours once a week for 4 weeks) from the acknowledged experts in counselling.
This course is for anyone who is currently dealing with emotional and distressed people, for example HR staff, health and social care providers, voluntary and statutory organisations or for personal use at home or at work.
The course will be costed at £50pp per week and completion of the course (total cost £200) will lead to a Certificate from Relate Kent.
By the end of the course the participants will have:
- Explored the need to build trust and rapport
- Gained an understanding of how they can positively influence a situation
- Practised effective questioning and listening skills
- Practised managing a variety of emotions
Run by a Relate trainer who is also an experienced and qualified counsellor, this course is designed to give participants the opportunity to learn the basic skills and therefore work more effectively with people who are struggling in these difficult times.
With over 80 years’ experience Relate Kent is in a prime position to offer relationship skills workshops for professionals and individuals.
Relate Kent trainers are practising Counsellors who have been selected and trained at national level. They are more than qualified in the techniques required to provide highly effective training. We work in an experiential way, allowing time for people to share issues, develop teamwork and new skills in a safe and nurturing environment.
Courses for Professionals:
Our workshops are aimed primarily at those involved in caring for others, managing a team, or in jobs where communicating effectively forms an integral part of their work. Although most professions and organisations do provide in-house training, we have found that there is an increasing demand for external expertise in specific areas.
Sample Courses available:
- Counselling Skills for Non Counsellors – from 1 day up to 3 days skills course.
- Supporting Distressed & Emotional Clients
- Dealing with Disclosure
- Managing Change
We also design and deliver tailor-made courses for organisations with specific needs, e.g. supporting people who have experienced difficult life changes such as divorce, separation or illness, both mental and physical.
We can work directly with service users, helping them deal with the challenges they may be facing.
Costs vary according to content and duration. Most workshops can be offered as a one-day course for a minimum of 6 participants (maximum 14).
Courses for individuals and couples
Our external programmes are for individuals who could benefit from help either with their personal relationships or with critical points in their lives, for example divorce, separation, depression and other life changes or relationship concerns which can have a significant impact on both the person and their wider family and community.
