A Basic Intensive Course finished in Cork on Sunday 19th February 2023. This had been organised by the Cork Branch of the Institute of Guidance Counsellors and had four participants: Carol, Eileen, Joy and Louise.
All participants and the instructor, Brian Lennon, welcomed the opportunity to return to face-to-face training. The venue was the Rochestown Park Hotel in Cork city. During the course the particpants remarked time and again about just how relevant the ideas of Choice Theory psychology and Reality Therapy were to their work as Guidance Counsellors. Choice Theory provides an excellent structure for counselling and enables the practitioner to incorporate many ideas from other modalities.
An interesting feature of this particular course was that, although the group was small, it included someone from third-level, second level, private practice and one person in training.
