Wellness Counsellor Certification Path For Educators & Teachers

Children are not things to be moulded, but are people to be unfolded
- Jess Lair

So many educators and teachers are placed at the front line of emotional and psychological support for children and their families. Children are evolving - and so are their needs. There are certain behaviours and emotions that need to be supported in class, outside of a diagnosis or label. This holistic support of children speaks to inclusive education and enabling children with limited self regulation techniques or behaviours to still thrive.  Educators do not always have the counselling skills or certification to be able to register with a counselling body and provide this service to those they want to help. We support these individuals by providing a comprehensive 4 week programme ( 5 live Zoom days of training held on weekday afternoons & evenings to accommodate school times) which provides for practical preparation and supervision hours which leads to eligibility in registering as a counsellor with the Association of Holistic Counsellors (ASCHP) Council for Counsellors in South Africa (CCSA). We are focused on holistic and wellness interventions and work within a specialist scope of practice
