Inside the membership

Join over 10,000 Accidental Counsellors Who Have Completed our Online Professional Development Courses.

The Accidental Counsellor Course has been extremely valuable for our network and the strategies are fantastic to apply in any field of work when dealing with people. In our Boarding School context, it is essential for staff to have the confidence to have difficult conversations with teenagers, understand where they are coming from and know when to refer them to more experienced staff.
The three hour tailored session Rocky ran for our group was extremely practicable, engaging and achieved the results we were after. I am sure the online training modules will provide the same high-quality learning that we received in the live session. I strongly recommend this course to others. Thanks Rocky!

Thomas Dunsmore, General Manager
Australian Boarding Schools Association

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.

Kelly, Jane and I attended the March Accidental Counsellor Training and have been following your techniques and it has made such an impact on our new Pastoral Care Centre. We have had many positive comments from students, teachers and parents, with parents calling us to ask us to help their child. We feel like we now have a solid philosophy to inform our decisions and a very clear vision of how we can best help our students. Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and experience with us….. don’t think we would still be coping without your invaluable guidance.

I created these online courses
for you because of my experience
as a classroom teacher, school
counsellor currently in private practice

Hi, my name is Rocky Biasi and I’ve presented my professional development courses to over 5000 school staff and non school staff across Australia since 2008.

This year we launched our online courses, and over 1350 school staff and community service workers have completed our online Professional Development training.

I created these courses from my experience as a high school teacher (10 years) and school counsellor (3 years) currently in private practice.

With an Accidental Counsellor Membership,
you'll learn how to...

Listen so the person feels heard and understood.
Manage the impact of hearing stories of trauma, pain and suffering
Ask solution focused questions to help create positive change.
Practical strategies to enhance wellbeing.
How to respond to loss & grief.
Cutting edge techniques to manage anxiety and stress
