Excellent workshop with practical, realistic advice and strategies for classroom use. I am already thinking of new ways to manage my classes tomorrow. Thanks Rocky.

Thought provoking session with many applicable strategies not just ideological concepts.

Thanks so much for last week’s professional development. I have been teaching for more years than I am willing to admit and don’t often put pen to paper but on this occasion I feel compelled to do so.
Your two day “Accidental counselling course” left me with many tools and a whole new outlook on helping my very needy students. I feel invigorated and empowered by my learning, the techniques you taught me, I have no doubt will make me more effective not only at a school level but also on a personal level.
I left on Thursday afternoon feeling a little overwhelmed but in the days that followed it all unravelled and I started to make sense of it all. The clarity of my mind on Monday morning when I was called upon to use my new learning was a really exciting moment for me, when for the first time I started to listen to one of my students in a whole new way.
I really can’t thank you enough and would highly recommend the accidental counselling course to anyone involved with children. Kind Regards.
As Deputy Principal of a large primary school, I am often faced with situations where I need to provide guidance and support for students.
Having recently completed the course, I have already used many of the strategies back at school and now feel more confident and well-equipped to deal with student issues.
The course was practical, action-packed and opened my mind to the many ways we can speak with and support students. I now feel better-equipped to manage the “difficult conversations” when my school counsellor isn’t on site. The added bonus is that many of the strategies will prove effective in my personal life as well.
Thanks Rocky! I will definitely be recommending the course to my staff.
Grafton Public School
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.
This classroom management training provided new insights and ideas. The focus on teacher presence is valuable if not challenging.
