Abstract

Outlines the philosophy, concepts and structure of a course in counselling for consultants. The participants on the first course were introduced to counselling whilst on a management course and had asked for further training. They found the skills useful in enabling their own personal development; in working with their patients; in supporting their colleagues and in career advice to junior staff. Evaluation indicates the high value placed by participants on this course.
