The training for Counselling and Coaching is given in The Hague and Antwerpen. Your trainer is Noa Brume and Els Barkema - Sala (The Hague), an international professional in counselling.


What do you learn in this Professional Counselling & Coaching course?
Just to mention the goals for learning to work as counsellor or coach, that you can achieve within that year:
  • learn to work safely and in a well-organised way
  • learn to develop a trusting relationship with clients within the boundaries of a sound ethical and professional code
  • gain sufficient knowledge of legal issues pertaining to counselling & coaching
  • acquire a working knowledge of counselling and coaching theories and methods
  • learn to work with diverse views, values and norms and with people from different cultures and backgrounds
  • learn to work with the personal experiences of clients, fellowstudents and of yourself
  • achieve personal growth that can be expressed in increased openness, honesty or being straightforward, personal integrity and authenticity
  • learn to work independently as counsellor or coach
  • learn to work creatively while maintaining an eye for coherence
  • being able to express fully and coherently what counselling and coaching actually means: what it is, how you do it, how it can work for people, what it is not, if/how it differs from other helping approaches, etcetera.
In addition to that, a whole range of topics and concepts will be explored, such as: safety and confidentiality / feedback / personal convictions, beliefs and values / feelings and emotions / congruence, unconditional positive regard and empathy / time and energy / resistance / personal and professional vision or mission / identity / systems / psychiatric conditions and diagnoses / culture / power& authority / ethics / autonomy /last but not least: self presentation.
