Personal Development - For Life (PD3)

This 30-hour course supports life-long personal development.  All members of the group will have previously completed the course “Personal Development and Counselling Skills” and “Personal Development – Continuing to Grow”.

This course will be experiential in nature and will feel comparable to the previous group experience.  There will be new material to explore with a focus on making personal application of the material in one’s own life.  This will be beneficial personally as well as benefiting participants in their interactions with family, friends and colleagues.

A willingness to openly explore and share with others will again be necessary.  Each group will have between eight and sixteen members.  The group may be a ‘new’ group, drawing together participants from a variety of previous groups.  A new contract regarding confidentiality will be established at our first meeting.


This course does not lead to a professional qualification as a counsellor or psychotherapist.  It is designed for personal growth.


There is no assessment in this course, however activities to consolidate the learning will be discussed and encouraged. Participants attending a minimum of 80% of the course will receive a Certificate of Attendance.
