The focus of the Life Skills Counsellor Certificate Online Program is to help students develop basic counselling skills. The course is the perfect addition to Rhodes Wellness College’s Life Coach Certificate. In addition, it is also a great fit for new students, offering an introductory experience to counselling in an applied setting.

Although the program is conducted entirely online, students take part in live and interactive courses in our virtual classroom. Guided by real, passionate instructors, students master key counselling concepts. The skills developed in this program are invaluable for anyone who manages people, whether in Human Resources or simply in a supervisory role.

While the Life Skills Counsellor Certificate Online Program teaches valuable counselling skills, it’s important to note that this program offers only an introduction to counselling. If you would like to pursue a career in counselling it is recommended you enroll in our Professional Counsellors Diploma program.  All credits are directly transferrable to the Professional Counsellor Diploma Program.

This program has been approved by the Registrar of the Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) of the Ministry of Advanced Education, Skills and Training.
