Increasing your skill-set and expanding services

Did you know that as a practitioner of counselling skills, you already have many of the skills that coaches use? Since life coaching and business coaching are increasingly used for personal and professional development, this is a service you could provide. Coaching skills help clients set goals, take responsibility for their actions and move forward in a more focussed way.

Rowan Consultancy is now offering a course specifically for counsellors, psychotherapists and professionals who use counselling skills. This enables you to understand the relationship between coaching and counselling, introduces you to a coaching competency framework and 2 coaching models, which you can integrate into your existing practice. At the end of the course you will also be in a better position to decide whether you wish to train to become a coach.

Who is this course for?

  • Practising counsellors who want to integrate coaching skills into their existing practice, especially towards the end as clients become more robust.
  • Professionals using counselling skills as part of their role, and who have gained at least a Certificate in Counselling Skills.

A prerequisite for this course is that you have a 120 hours Certificate in Counselling Skills or a diploma in counselling or psychotherapy.

Overview

This course will introduce you to the difference between coaching and counselling, together with some coaching skills which complement your existing skills base. This will enable you to either integrate coaching skills into your counselling work or help you decide whether you would like further training as a coach.

By the end of the course you will:

  • be familiar with the International Coach Federation (ICF) Core Coaching Competencies
  • have practised the TGROW coaching model and one other current coaching model
  • have considered how to integrate coaching into your counselling practice
  • understand some of the differences and similarities between coaching and counselling

This course consists of 12 tutor-contact hours plus 4 hours self-guided study.

Progression

Participation in this course allows you to progress directly to Day 2 of Rowan's ILM Award or Certificate in Coaching

Why Rowan Training?

Rowan is well positioned to deliver coaching skills training for counsellors, since we started as a counselling and psychotherapy agency and have now expanded to include individual and team coaching. We are an approved training centre for the Institute of Leadership and Management (ILM), offering their coaching courses, and for COSCA counselling courses. So we understand the coaching-counselling spectrum, the different skills needed and what it's like to be a counsellor moving into coaching.

We believe you don't learn skills by just being lectured or seeing slides, so we use experiential learning where you relate the theory to your own situation and practise coaching skills on one another with feedback from tutors, as well as us giving demonstrations of coaching skills. It's the best way to learn!

Endorsements

This course has CPD endorsement from the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy (BACP) and from the Association for Integrative Coach-Therapists (AICTP).
