Course Content
Understand yourself and others from a Christian perspective, with the aim of developing and expanding your listening skills.

Most people need help at times as they journey through life. A sympathetic listening ear is always appreciated, but sometimes people need more. We can help equip you to play a part in the lives of those who are struggling, enabling them to move forward and discover the freedom to grow into all that God desires them to be. Over the five days, you’ll cover topics including:

  • The biblical basis for care and counselling

  • Developing basic counselling skills
  • A clear framework for the counselling process
