Chris Houston's Final Study Blog

26th June 2017

Widnes Vikings Co-Captain, Chris Houston, shares the final instalment of his study blog.

"Hello again! It's time for me to wrap up my blog about my Counselling course at Riverside College, having recently completed my course.

Studying at Riverside has been a fantastic experience. Not only have I learned a lot about counselling theories and techniques, I've also learned a lot about myself. This course encourages you to be genuine, to listen properly and to treat individuals as equals without prejudice. I think no matter who you are or what you do, everyone could benefit from this.

This was highlighted by the diversity in our class. We had people wanting to be counsellors, people wanting a bit of self-discovery, people looking to help a friend or family member, and people looking to progress with their current jobs.

I really enjoyed working with the tutor and our group, and want to thank them if they are reading this. It was great meeting new people who want to better themselves and to also help others. I am very grateful that Widnes Vikings and the Riverside College for giving me this opportunity and encouraging me to do this course. I have learned many things that I will use for the rest of my life.

Thank you,

Chris Houston
