ABOUT HUMAN CONNECTIONS
25 years ago Rocky found himself depressed and anxious and didn’t know what that was! His story from seeking counselling to becoming a counsellor is an unlikely story. Along the way he changed his life and is passionate about sharing his story and program for Mental Health and Wellbeing.
At the age of 16, Rocky left school in order to work in banking after which he proceeded to his own retail business. Despite being in another field, Rocky had a passion for teaching and he ultimately decided to follow through with his dreams. He commenced his teaching career in his 30s. He has worked as a high school teacher and school counsellor also in private practice for 20 years.
The Accidental Counsellor Training
In 2005 Rocky took on advice from a former school principal who suggested he should “formalise his informal Professional Development to staff” and the Accidental Counsellor Training was born. Rocky created this training from his experience as a teacher, school counsellor also in private practice.
In 2010 Rocky created an online members site that held the Accidental Counsellor Training online along with a range of other mental health and wellbeing courses and resources. He was first in bringing this type of training online to share with those who were not able to attend face to face training.
