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

The Introduction to Christian Care and Counselling (ICCC) five-day course teaches basic counselling principles within a Christian context. It is designed for anyone who wants to learn about themselves and how to help others effectively, no matter how much or little previous knowledge and experience they have. It is a reflective course; interactive and personal, using practical methods and theory.

Most people need help at times as they journey through life. A sympathetic listening ear is always appreciated, but sometimes people need more. You can be equipped 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
  • Reason and causes for problems
  • Developing basic counselling skills
  • A clear framework for the counselling process

The course is ideal for anyone who is:

  • Looking for basic training for pastoral care
  • Wanting to help people in everyday life
  • Running a small group
  • In part-time or full-time Christian ministry
  • Thinking about full counselling training

The ICCC provides excellent foundational teaching as a stand-alone course, but is also an ideal opportunity to find out if a Counselling programme with Waverley Abbey College could be the next step for further training.
