Counselling Skills (RQF) Level 2

This NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills (RQF) (600/0728/X) qualification will introduce you to the use of counselling skills in everyday life. This could be in and out of work. Some of the approaches that underpin the use of these skills will also be taught.

What will you study on this counselling skills course?

Studying on our online counselling course will provide you with the values, principles and moral qualities needed to acquire and develop counselling skills.

This introduction to counselling course will give you knowledge  about:

  • developing counselling skills
  • diversity and ethics within counselling skills
  • understanding the different approaches involved in counselling
  • the importance of self-development

You’ll learn to identify and practice a range of core counselling skills that can be used when participating in counselling interactions.

Having a positive regard for the person being counselled; respecting them, showing empathy and genuineness are core counselling skills. Listening carefully, controlling your body language, (watching theirs too) asking advanced open ended questions and summarising are also key skills.

As a learner, you’ll discover the importance and necessity of diversity and ethics within counselling skills. Ensuring that people feel comfortable and safe to express themselves, is an important value. Understanding the other person’s experience from their frame of reference using empathy is also essential. Learning to develop resilience of working with other people’s concerns, without being personally effected is crucial too.

There’s a counselling skills and personal development unit where you’ll have an opportunity to reflect on your personal and future development. This can help you to identify any potential need for support.

Working towards self-awareness is part of the syllabus. Taking care of yourself is important.  Having a better understanding of your self is essential to personal growth and can help you achieve results in life. Whilst we have a lot to give to others, the best place to start is with ourselves.


Who can enrol on our Counselling Skills course?

The qualification would be useful for anyone who would like to develop their use of counselling skills for use in either work or in a personal capacity. You can take this course initially and then progress toward further qualifications. Learners can also study this programme in order to complement other programmes (Health and Social Care, children’s care)

The great news is that no prior learning knowledge or experience is essential to take this course.  This Counselling Skills course is openly available to anyone wishing to learn more about counselling at home, at their own pace.

What qualification will you get?

You’ll receive NCFE Level 2 Certificate in Counselling Skills (RQF) which has been designed to develop your understanding and knowledge of counselling skills.

One of the benefits of the course qualification and other QCF courses that we offer is that learners can transfer credit from one qualification to another. Learners who’ve already achieved one or more of the units (in these QCF qualifications) can transfer the credit already achieved.

What courses can I progress onto on completion of the Certificate in Nutrition & Health RQF Level 2 course?

You may be interested in continuing your studies with us, after successfully completing this qualification by progressing onto the next level - which is the Diploma in Counselling Skills RQF Level 3. This has been designed to provide you with an in-depth knowledge and competence of counselling skills.

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
