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.

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.
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.
I’m ready to go Monday and use this straight away.

This classroom management training reminded me of why I became a teacher. The skills were practical. Thank goodness for PD Days like this and people like you!

This classroom management training provided new insights and ideas. The focus on teacher presence is valuable if not challenging.
