Advanced Counselling Courses Brighton | Advanced counselling skills: Increase your confidence and effectiveness in client sessions

Have you ever struggled to set clear goals for therapy and felt overwhelmed by the catch 22 situation that your client describes themselves in?

We have all had those moments when we meet those ‘heart sink’ clients. No matter how much we build rapport, reframe and try to set goals, we meet with resistance, ‘yeah buts’ and double binds that seem set in concrete.

Those sessions can leave you tired and wondering what else you could do. But there are skills that you can add to your existing base that will increase your confidence and effectiveness in complex client cases.

Advanced counselling extra skills to ensure that you and your client consistently move towards beneficial change and you maintain your vitality and confidence.

  • The transformational art of paraphrasing. Use language to identify the emotion core of a problem, and process the mass of content and feelings so that clear goal setting becomes possible
  • The skill of advanced reflective listening to gain strong rapport and influence in client sessions, including awareness of para- language and congruence
  • Advanced mirroring and matching to open the clients unique route to change
  • To identify Emotional Flooding and know how to help the client discharge and rebalance so that clear thought can illicit beneficial change
  • Advanced rapport – how to spot useful information inferred and not spoken explicitly by the client
  • How to develop your own intuition and creativity in client sessions, and confidently use your insights to move your client towards their goal
  • How to develop your own “internal supervisor


  • Self Awareness – how sometimes our own blocks or unknown bias may create resistance
  • Get to know about client qualities you are “allergic” to and how this can be remedied
  • How to develop a rich and clear insight of how to move a client on instead of going around in circles and meeting resistance at every turn. Work with the side of the client that really wants to change
  • Prevent burn out! Walk your talk so that you can easily focus on the client’s needs
  • When to refer on to another health professional
  • How to set clear professional boundaries whilst maintaining rapport
  • How to work ethically – raising your standards in terms of integrity, impartiality and respect. Ensuring anti-discriminatory practice
