A Basic Counselling Skills training programme was recently conducted for The Peer Counsellors Group at a local university to support mental health and wellbeing among students. The chosen students are in charge of providing support and outreach to their peers who may be experiencing emotional distress. The programme’s motto is “Listen More, Judge Less,” and it aims to promote empathy and provide a safe space for people to express their feelings.
The training was held on a Saturday and was led by 11 students from various faculties and three registered counsellors. The programme covered important skills like active listening, empathy, and nonjudgmental communication. The training’s goal was to provide Peer Counsellors with the skills they needed to provide effective support to their peers while also encouraging them to seek professional help when necessary.
