Rowan are validated by COSCA to deliver the Certificate in Counselling Skills. The Certificate is for anybody who wants to improve their understanding of other people as well as themselves.

The course is useful and practical, whether you are a sales person, parent, manager, a professional/volunteer carer or helper.

Each module carries 10 credits at SCQF Level 8.

You will learn to:

  • support others by developing practical listening skills
  • increase your self-awareness
  • build rapport with others

What does the course involve?

The course involves three main strands:


You'll learn and understand the concepts of counselling and counselling skills, find out more about ethics and learn how to listen to and support others.


You'll put into practice what you've learned, such as active listening skills, the use of body language, and speaking effectively while others listen.


You'll take part in insightful exercises to better understand yourself and how others perceive you.

Feedback about the Counselling Skills course" Very high impact. At first I struggled to see the relevance but as the course progressed it was really worthwhile. I learned new skills and believe that I have emerged as a more capable effective worker.Well delivered course. I learned a great deal about myself and how I work with young people. "

Carie Taylor-Burns, Xplore Project, Dundee

" Staff have found the range of courses provided by Rowan useful and the COSCA modules very useful in boosting worker confidence to handle sensitive issues in the care settings they work in. I am delighted that the certificate is now credit rated within the SCQF, which gives us, as employers, a level for the purpose of gauging staff competencies. "
