How it works?
This is where the skills-building really kicks in! We meet one evening a week for around three months. Through this course we introduce and practice a wide range of skills for counselling on phones, text messages and emails. We also start looking at some of the big issues that are out there, and start to get to grips with how to manage them so we are prepared for these issues emerging from callers or young people we work with. These include grief, anger and aggression, depression and suicidality.
By the end of this course most people will have the Basic Skills under their belts and be ready to get started with us in the booths (the ‘Hub’) to respond to phone calls, text messages and emails, or with one of the other services we provide for young people and the community.
