I would like to take a moment to tell you what a great experience I had at your workshop. I have been a teacher for 19 years and have participated in sessions such as BoysTalk, and completed units on Interpersonal Relationships at Uni. I found your workshop to be informative, challenging (in a good way), and most importantly it contained skills that are immediately useful. I found myself using some of the techniques covered in the following week with great success.
When I got to work on Monday I immediately recommended you to the schools’ Executive Leaders as something to be considered for our staff PD. Whilst it may not suit everyone (as not everyone is comfortable being a counsellor), your workshop would be an invaluable experience for anyone interested in developing their skills as a counsellor, either as a career pathway or as an ‘accidental’ counsellor.

Excellent practical strategies to use with a variety of steps and structures were presented at the Conscious Classroom Management Training workshop. The preventative strategies and what to say “communication script” were most useful.

I was lucky enough to try out some techniques with a year eight girl today and I felt 100% more confident speaking to a young girl who has been reluctant to open up to anybody and has been in and out of hospital over the past month. Before I knew it 45 minutes had passed and I had said barely anything. The student said “it was nice to actually talk and not be lectured”.
Very powerful tools rocky!!! Cheers.
I will be able to take these strategies to my faculty and help them deal with their management difficulties.

I have already used some of the tips I learnt at the training with an irate parent and a cranky student, with great success! Thank you.

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.
