Equipping You to Support Others

This counselling skills course is aimed at church leaders, ministry teams and those with a heart to help others

The course will take a particular approach to counselling, which is, wherever possible, to discover the way the Bible teaches us to handle a variety of common problems and difficulties.

The course will involve teaching, practical exercises, discussion, Bible study and prayer.

You will be encouraged to be open and honest—having a good sense of humour will help!
