Second COSCA Counselling course set due to demand

Caroline Counselling 3

Demand is proving so high for our COSCA accredited counselling course, staff at the centre in Victoria Road, Falkirk are delighted to be delivering a second course, starting in September.

Morag Fullard, Volunteer Training & Development Coordinator, Said “We’re really overjoyed with the response to this course so far. Before we became accredited to deliver this course, people would have had to travel to Glasgow, Edinburgh or Perth and we’re delighted that we can offer it locally. With the current course now fully subscribed, it is great that we can now offer a second”

Recognised as a baseline qualification for anyone wishing to become a counsellor, the course is also for anyone looking to develop true listening and effective communication skills as well as a valuable insight with theory and hands-on practice.

Morag added, “We know there was a demand for this course. People are becoming much more aware of the importance of improving their listening skills, whether they are a parent, a carer or an employer.”
Comprising of 4 modules, the course is delivered by an experienced trainer and fully qualified counsellor in a small group setting for 3 hours per week as well as the occasional Saturday.

Wendy Nicoll, Training Facilitator, said “Although it’s a counselling course, it’s really about advanced communication. It teaches people to listen, how to approach difficult conversations, and how to recognise if there is a problem.”

The next course will start on Thursday 1st September and will run in line with the academic year. For further information including prices, please visit or contact Morag Fullard on (01324 671 600)
