Do you live in Australia and want to become a counsellor?

Navigating the journey to become a registered counsellor in Australia can be confusing.  Training in counselling is expensive and navigating the demands of the profession as a student or graduate can be tricky. People can gain years of counsellor practice to find out that they have not kept the correct paperwork and may find it difficult to join a counselling association.  This course has been written after hearing students describe their confusion about how to proceed towards registration. 

I have prepared this course to provide information to make your decisions easier and more informed. I am not going to tell you what course to enroll in or recommend one professional association over another. I believe in providing sufficient information so you can make informed decisions along the way. 

I have been a registered counsellor for almost two decades so am familiar with the requirements for the journey towards registration.  

Note that this course has been written for an Australian context only, and is not provided on behalf of any training institution or counselling association.  

In this course you will learn: 

  • The benefits of counsellor registration
  • The employment options for trained counsellors
  • The differences and requirements of counsellor training programs
  • Record keeping requirements for counselling experience and clinical supervision
  • About the importance of personal and professional development

Couples Counselling using Systemic Family Therapy

Help people build stronger relationships and marriages by learning couples counselling skills

Students: 3150, Price:  Paid

Do you want to help couples build stronger, longer-lasting relationships? Do you want to support couples in distress? Or maybe you want to better understand intimate relationships for your personal life.

If so, this is the course for you. We will cover the foundations of couples counselling including relationship theory, the process of couples counselling and relationship-specific therapy techniques.

Couples counselling is very different to individual psychotherapy. Rather than helping one person make sense of their thoughts and feelings, we need to help multiple people make sense of the interactions with each other. This requires a different approach, hence we will draw on theory from the school of Systemic Family Therapy.

We will learn:

  • How relationships work

  • Using systemic family therapy for counselling multiple people

  • Core counselling skills

  • Step-by-step doing couples counselling

  • Relationship-specific therapeutic techniques

While a background in counselling, such as person-centred, may be useful, we will cover core counselling skills in this course, so no background in counselling is required.

Who isn’t this course for:

  • We take a wide and inclusive view of relationships, including the LGBT community, so anyone with a highly traditional view of marriage may not be comfortable with the course material

  • This course will not focus on sexual dysfunction, so if you are looking to support couples who are having sexual-specific problems, other courses may be better suited.

The course comes with a comprehensive handbook so that you will have everything you need to deliver couples counselling. On completing the course, you will earn a certificate accredited by both the International Association of Therapists and the European Educational Standards Body (EESB).

There is one thing about Counselling that I have never been able to get past and it drove me to develop this way of working, the Solution Based Counselling way of working. From the moment I started to study Counselling I was told the Counselling is not about finding a solution for the client….. WAIT…… WHAT?

I remember questioning the tutor about it when she said it but she just reiterated those words. I’ve seen them written down in text books and articles throughout my studies and to be honest it blows me away that we, as Helping Practitioners, could have a client come to us and not try to work with them to find a solution to their problems.

I don’t mean give them the solution, that’s not our role! Yet, surely, we should be helping them to discover their own solutions?

This is where Solution Based Counselling comes in. A new format, a new framework, for using the core fundamentals of Counselling and adding in tools from other helping areas and my own experience. Solution Based Counselling brings counselling skills into the modern age, an age where we are here to help those who need it.

“We think we listen, but very rarely do we listen with real understanding, true empathy. Yet listening, of this very special kind, is one of the most potent forces for change that I know” - Carl Rogers

It’s time Counselling moved on from the traditional way of having clients come back for month after month and even year after year. The potential to help people discover their own solutions to the problems in their lives is immense and, when harnessed, can help them change their lives drastically.

What are others saying about this course?

This course serves as a comprehensive overview of the central theories and practices of contemporary Existential Therapy (ET).

It is ideal for anyone working in the mental health sector and is especially valuable to qualified:

  • psychotherapists

  • counsellors

  • psychiatrists

  • clinical psychologists

  • life coaches and pastoral workers.

As well as those training towards such professions.

Whilst the course may also of interest to non-professionals with a personal interest in psychology and philosophy: specialist academic language is used throughout the course and it is pitched at a postgraduate level; it is mainly intended for mental health professionals and refers to therapeutic techniques and strategies throughout.

The Goals of Existential Therapy

Existential therapies have different goals to more conventional approaches to mental health, principle goals include:

  • Helping people to live more authentic lives and avoid various forms of inauthentic behaviour

  • Maximising autonomy and freedom by encouraging people to assume responsibility for their choices (and their lives)

  • Helping people to find (or construct) a sense of meaning, purpose and value in life

  • Cultivating wisdom and the pursuit of philosophical truth: overcoming self-deception and harmful delusions

  • Helping people to face reality and certain "existential givens" (such as death/mortality) so that they can live more full and engaged lives

Existential therapies are firmly rooted in existential philosophy and often draw on the ideas of prominent existential philosophers such as Kierkegaard, Buber, Nietzsche & Sartre - most of whom were writing in a time where the distinction between philosophy and psychology was less rigid than it is today. Likewise, existential therapies tend to be heavily influenced by phenomenology and phenomenological philosophers (such as Hegel and Heidegger) .

Due to this influence of phenomenology existential therapies tend to emphasise subjectivity and inter-subjectivity; the nature and significance of phenomenology are something explored in this course. Helping people to reconnect with the subjective nature of their lives (instead of viewing themselves as passive objects or labels or in terms of overly reductionist biographical narratives) is both an important goal and a central method of many approaches to existential therapy.

Furthermore, these approaches to therapy emphasise the role of will, choice, and volition in the challenges (and sometimes symptoms) that present in the lives of patients/clients and in the therapeutic process: they are, in part, a reaction to overly-deterministic and reductionist accounts of human behaviour and psychology.

In truth, there is no single 'Existential Therapy' but multiple 'existential therapies' - different branches of therapy and psychotherapy that are informed by different existential philosophers and existential psychologists: the course covers the three most prominent existentially-orientated approaches to therapy and psychotherapy:

  1. Logotherapy

  2. Existential-Humanistic Therapy

  3. Existential Phenomenological Therapy (and 'The British School')

It also takes an in-depth look at the model of existential psychotherapy developed by Irvin Yalom and explores more recent developments in the field: Existential-Positive Psychology, Positive Psychology 2.0, and potential avenues for integrating existential therapy with Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT)

The Aims of The Course

This course focuses on outlining, describing and explaining the central concepts, theories and practices of Existential Therapy: it does not pretend to present a particularly critical or evaluative analysis, it does not explore the evidential basis of existential therapy nor does it attempt to 'sell you' Existential Therapy. Critical appraisal of the value of existential therapy is something I will leave to you.

What I can promise, however, is that you will have a firm grasp of Existential Therapy by the end of this course as well as some new, existentially-informed, therapeutic techniques to experiment with in your practice as a mental health professional. Moreover, I can promise you that the course is well-researched and that I have done my utmost to do this fascinating and unique approach to therapy justice and to represent it both fairly and comprehensively.

Aside from my hope that this course will enhance your practice as a therapist and bring great benefit to those with whom you work, it is also my hope that you will find the concepts and theories of the course personally relevant, engaging, and perhaps even challenging!

Finally: one of my aims is to offer good value - this desire is borne partly out of my own frustration at how expensive high-quality training is for counsellors and psychotherapists and how limited exposure to these theories and ideas is as a result. This course is a fraction of the price of more established training courses for Existential Therapy and my ambition is not only to match those courses but to surpass them in quality.

Important Information & Considerations

  • The course includes twenty video-learning sessions*. Aside from containing in-depth explanations of Existential Therapy these sessions also include various learning and reflection activities that you should engage in if you hope to maximise your learning.

  • Included in the course is a printable workbook** that features learning and reflection tasks: this workbook should be printed off and either bound as a booklet or kept together in a file prior to beginning the first learning session. Every learning-session has its own double-sided worksheet (as a section of the workbook) and engaging with these worksheets and learning activities is something expected of students who wish to get the most out of this course.

  • This course asks that you utilise an 'active learning' approach and, in true existential fashion, asks that you take responsibility for getting the most out of it. If you are looking for a course in which you passively absorb information - as if listening to an audio book - this course is not for you! Likewise: if you cannot print the workbook/worksheets because you do not have access to a printer - that will be an obstacle to learning.

  • Each learning session also includes additional links to relevant external resources such as articles and videos: these are intended to support your learning and taking the time to explore these additional resources will help you to perfect your expertise in existential approaches to therapy.

  • My intention is to create expertise: this means it is heavy on theory and doesn't 'pull any punches' when it comes to detailed exploration of complicated ideas and concepts. It is not a 'dumbed-down' course and aims to be intellectually and academically rigorous and challenging.

  • Those who complete the video learning-sessions will receive a certificate of completion automatically from Udemy: an 'Advanced Certificate in Existential Therapy, Psychotherapy & Counselling' can also be claimed (at no additional cost) by students who successfully complete the course and additional assessment tasks (outlined in the aforementioned printable workbook). At the time of release (July, 2020) the Advanced Certificate is not formally accredited though it is my intention to remedy this in due course.

*If the course is sufficiently popular and well-received, I intend to expand upon it and add new learning sessions over time.

**The printable workbook is attached to Lecture 1, once registered you should download it there.

This new online course is as an in-depth well-researched, and comprehensive overview of Transactional Analysis (TA): by the end of it you'll have a secure understanding of the theories, concepts and therapeutic strategies associated with this insightful model of human psychology, communication and behaviour.

The course is pitched at a postgraduate level and is designed for mental health professions, psychotherapists and counsellors. It's also of interest to students of clinical psychology with an interest in the history of psychology.

Register today and access over 20 hours of video-learning material that's supplemented with a carefully collated range of external, supporting, resources.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

The main goal of Transactional Analysis is to help people to experience freer, more autonomous, and more intimate ways of relating to other people. As you progress through the course you'll master the following topics:

  • The Ego State Model [Parent, Adult, and Child Ego States]

  • How To Analyse Communication [Transactional Analysis Proper]

  • Life Positions / Existential Positions (The "OK / Not-OK" States)

  • Strokes, Stroke Hunger & The Stroke Economy (Developmental & Motivational Psychology)

  • Script, Life Script & The Nature of Autonomy

  • Ego Game Analysis [Games]

  • Racket Systems, Substitute Emotions & Racketeering

  • Effective Communication Strategies [Red & Blue Communication]

  • Transactional Analysis Based Approaches to Therapy

  • Therapeutic Strategies Based on Transactional Analysis

Transactional Analysis offers a complete framework for human psychology that's premised on a Parent - Adult - Child model of 'Ego States' - one of it's general goals is to foster an 'Integrating Adult' ego state that can solve-problems, think rationality, and engage fully with the here and now processes of living and interacting.

By improving the ways in which people communicate we can help them to live more functional lives, engage in more healthy relationships, and relate more harmoniously with wider society.

_______________________________________________________________________________________________

This course calls on seven decades of theory and practice and pools it into a single, in-depth, learning package that will foster both your professional and your personal development. Whilst Transactional Analysis has applications in Educational Psychology and Organisational Psychology, this course focuses entirely on the clinical applications of Transactional Analysis and is designed with mental health professionals in mind.

One thing we'll explore at some points in the course is how we can connect these 'forgotten gem' concepts from Classic Transactional Analysis to modern mental health challenges; one particular area of promise is in relation to 'Social Media Addiction'. I invite you to connect the ideas we explore in this course to your own life, your own practice and the lives of those you work with.
