THE ACCIDENTAL COUNSELLOR TRAINING
For Anyone Not Trained As A Counsellor But Often Find Themselves in Counselling Situations By Accident.
As an Accidental Counsellor you are not a qualified Counsellor and you don’t do therapy. However, regardless of title or qualification you are an Accidental Counsellor.
Accidental Counsellors are people who find they are placed in a counselling/mentoring/coaching role by accident, as a result of requests for help from friends, colleagues, clients or others.
THE ACCIDENTAL COUNSELLOR TRAINING will focus on 3 core themes:
As an Accidental Counsellor a focus on your wellbeing and self care is essential to avoid burnout.
A focus on your wellbeing and self-care allows you to connect to the stories of pain and suffering you hear from the people you support.
We connect to people’s stories of pain and suffering by listening and acknowledging and validity what their experience.
It’s with this deep connection that safety and trust increases and the person begins to calm down. Then if appropriate you can ask questions to help the person discover their “next best step”.
Using practical “Solution Focused” questions and language patterns means you are not giving advice but more facilitating and empowering the person to take their next best step.
AREAS COVERED IN THE ACCIDENTAL COUNSELLOR TRAINING INCLUDE
– Evidence based Wellbeing strategies from the field of Positive Psychology
– Connection processes including reflective listening and the Perception Process
– How to influence using Solution Focused Communication
– and much more!
The way the live online teleconference works
The teleconference will have all of the face to face elements.
We will still be able to connect with other people and chat and discuss in small groups via the breakout rooms using Zoom software. It’s easy easy as clicking on a link and there we are connected virtually.
During a face to face event people sometimes want to speak with me one on one . We can do that online also where we can schedule a 15 minute call and speak with me one on one.
Here are the details.
Introduction to the training and technology 9am to 9.30am

The one-day workshop I attended and the online videos I watched prior to attending have given me so much comfort and so many strategies, rationales and frameworks that I can use in both my professional life and my personal life.
