Course description

Counselling Skills (RQF) Level 2 plus Substance Misuse Awareness

This NCFE qualification can help you if you want to gain employment, improve your career prospects, or continue to study for further qualifications.

Stonebridge distance learning courses are flexible and easily accessible. This course in substance misuse awareness and counselling is no different. It will provide accurate and up-to-date knowledge of substance misuse as well as counselling skills theories.

What will you study on this Substance Misuse Awareness and Counselling course?

You’ll be expected to develop an awareness of substance misuse. The online NCFE qualification will provide you with the following to learn:

  • Know what substances are commonly misused and why
  • Recognise possible signs of substance misuse
  • Be aware of the social and personal effects of substance misuse
  • Be aware of perceptions of and responses to substance misuse

This is a dual online learning course, which means it also covers another topic – counselling skills.

You’ll learn all about core counselling skills and how to establish helping relationships. Counselling theories and their significance, are also explored on the online course. Diversity and ethics in the use of counselling skills is covered. Finally, the counselling skills and personal development unit will give you the opportunity to reflect on your own personal and future development. This can help you to see how personal qualities are relevant to helping roles.
