More Information about our Christian Counselling & Coaching Training Course

Are you interested in minimising the struggles and suffering of your clients and at the same time assist them in reaching their full potential? This training course will not only inspire, but also provide all the practical tools and skills for sustainable change and transformation.

Counseling is a talking therapy in which we address difficulties that are preventing you from moving forward, both past and present. As a counsellor, you will help resolve your client’s problems constructively by assisting them in clarifying issues, exploring possibilities, developing strategies, and increasing self-awareness.

During coaching, we will turn to the activation of powerful long-distance positive changes within our client. Benefits for the client will be clarity of vision, purpose, and value as a person. Accepting responsibility, being motivated and problem-solving skills will help reach your client his/her untapped potential.
