Introduction to Counselling & Listening Skills (ITC)

Our entry level course for those who would like to develop their listening skills and explore counselling skills. We run these courses throughout the year.

The GCS Introduction to Counselling & Listening Skills course (ITC) has been running for many years and receives consistently excellent feedback. The course provides an overview of the counselling process as well as training in core listening and counselling skills.

Listening is a key life-skill that everyone engages in, whether consciously or not and it is a skill that everyone can develop and master at a deeper level. Participants regularly report that this course has enabled them to have more meaningful conversations, enhanced their relationships – both at home and work and it has opened up a deeper self-awareness.

This course offers an enjoyable and enriching personal development activity and it can also be a first step to further training, potentially marking the beginning of your journey to becoming a trained, professional counsellor. Delivered by qualified and experienced counsellors, the ITC provides participants with a professional and rich learning experience.


This is a 2-day course. Saturday and Sunday, 10.00am - 4.00pm. They are held at different venues throughout the year. Please check on our website for locations.
