TESTIMONIALS

What Our Students Say

Kelly, Jane and I attended the March Accidental Counsellor Training and have been following your techniques and it has made such an impact on our new Pastoral Care Centre.

We have had many positive comments from students, teachers and parents, with parents calling us to ask us to help their child. We feel like we now have a solid philosophy to inform our decisions and a very clear vision of how we can best help our students. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and experience with us….. don’t think we would still be coping without your invaluable guidance.

Hi Rocky,I Have used your techniques twice already and it was FABULOUS! (obviously not seemless – more practise needed) but i had direction and focus and purpose and just a really positive vibe in both conversations. Love it. Thanks heaps.

The Conscious Classroom Management training covered many valuable aspects of classroom management. Good reinforcement of certain things I’m already implementing and it also provided useful strategies to utilise.
