I just wanted to reach out and thank you so much for the accidental counsellor training in Smithton yesterday.
I was tossing up whether to go as I have Postgraduate Certificate in counselling that I completed many years ago. I am so happy that I decided to attend. The session yesterday has already had a significant impact on my own life - I also shared your teachings with my son who has anxiety. I know that this course will change my life and that of the clients I am working with.
I cant thank you enough! And I definitely can't recommend your training enough!
I gained so much from your short course and learned a lot for my own well being as well as how to help others.
Learning how to listen fully, have real empathy not sympathy, not to tell people what to do but help them make positive decisions for themselves and for me to know that sometimes people need a team, not just my listening ear.
The solution focussed questions you talked about made perfect sense and the saying ' where our focus goes, our energy flows' is so true! Thank you so much for sharing your insight and real caring for people's anguish.
Rocky, the day you gave us had the most fabulous impact - when I sent out the invitation to receive online access to the modules, I had so many emails expressing gratitude for the day and words like - "it was the best PD I have ever experienced" - over and over again, Rocky. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the gift of the day with you. Just fantastic!
Thank you, I really enjoyed your short course. I run a parenting program in a prison with mums in custody. Sometimes I find myself struggling to know how to respond to certain things and this course has really helped me. I will be utilising everything that I have learnt.
I just want to let you know that the feedback from our teams was excellent, and that our staff found the sessions really useful.
Your presentation was 15/10. It was very well received and this is evident through the evaluations 😊
It was fabulous collaborating with you and our team really appreciates you expertise and the sharing of your slides 😊
"Out of 21 evaluations, 20 respondents, or 95.24% were very satisfied from your presentation (the highest rank possible.)"
"What a fantastic training course! We have had nothing but positive feedback and I think you reached deep into the hearts and minds of many of our volunteers."
"Hi Rocky, I have used your techniques twice already and it was FABULOUS! (obviously not seamless - more practice needed) but I had direction and focus and purpose and just a really positive vibe in both conversations. Love it. Thanks heaps."
