Next course starts on 22nd February 2018 - pre-bookings now available.
The Personal Growth Course is designed to enable us to discover, understand and accept others and ourselves. Since the best learning and growth takes place through experiencing and doing rather than through passive listening and observing, our training courses are based primarily on trainee participation, group discussion and experiential learning.
Experiential learning is a process of making generalizations and conclusions about our own direct experiences. This course will therefore provide you with a variety of experiences from which you can learn more about yourself and how you think, act and feel in various situations.
Topics and areas covered:
- Acceptance of feelings
- Responsible confrontation
- The wheel of growth
- Coping with loss and grief
- Direct mutual talk
- Methods of resolving conflict
- Respect for others
This course is an investment in yourself. You will gain emotional intelligence through a deeper understanding of yourself and others, and will be able to communicate more effectively with family, friends and coworkers.

The Personal Growth and Counselling Skills Course run concurrently. This course is designed to train volunteer lay counsellors. However, people who attend the course with no intention of becoming a lay counsellor benefit tremendously. The course is an investment in yourself. You discover who you are, your inner strengths and look behind all the masks you wear. The course enhances inter personal relationships, increases self-confidence and improves communication and coping skills.
