Our service

KAS Counselling Training Services provides high quality, affordable training for existing counsellors, trainees or agencies.
We believe learning is best facilitated when learners are presented with engaging material they can apply to their lives. Our training is designed to take theories, models, ideas, knowledge and experience and turn it into a learning experience that will improve your counselling practice.
We incorporate the latest academic thinking with the lived experiences of clients and counsellors, so learners can see how ideas can be turned into practice. Our courses use a variety of styles incorporating: presentations, exercises, audio/ visual elements etc. so that all learners will be able to engage at the level that suits them best.
