On our way back from the the Brisbane training we ran the Accidental Counsellor Training at Coffs Harbour.
Why run the Accidental Counsellor Training in Coffs Harbour?
- Previously the Accidental Counsellor Training was held in Newcastle and Tweed Heads on the North Coast of NSW. Many people requested something in between.
- My sister and her husband and two boys live in Sawtell – a short drive to Coffs Harbour
We loved our stay at Sawtell, catching up with family and walking on the beach in the morning before I presented the workshop.
Here are some of the testimonials from the Accidental Counsellor Training in Coffs Harbour
The Accidental Counsellor Training provided great practical strategies – liked the role plays.
Donna Kouwenhoven, Chatham High School
Real solutions to real problems were presented at the Accidental Counsellor Training. Wonderfully presented.
Chris Browne, Coffs Harbour High School
At the Accidental Counsellor Training I learnt better ways to establish empathy and connection with the client through building rapport.
Jacinta Gillespie, South Grafton High School
Thank you for the excellent Accidental Counsellor Training. It has made me think differently. For example, have time for myself so I can help students more effectively.
Anna Carle, South Grafton High School
All the ideas at the Accidental Counsellor Training are highly functional and I don’t feel overwhelmed I just need to readjust my thinking – not easy but not impossible! So thank you very much and I will be helping my colleagues understand what I have learnedover the two days at the Accidental Counsellor Training workshop.
Jo Grady, Clarence Valley Anglican School
This Accidental Counsellor Training will guide my counselling sessions in the future. Thank you.
Lisa Schuler-Glase, Camden Haven High School
The Accidental Counsellor Training was very useful, inspiring.
Rohan Kallmier, Melville High School
Well done Rocky – this Accidental Counsellor Training course was a good all round workshop. I will be able to use some of this stuff myself.
Roxanne Ruprecht, Camden Haven High School
Through doing this Accidental Counsellor Training course I have changed my way of helping students help themselves. As I knew about students owning solutions but didn’t know how to implement. Role Play strategies gave me the opportunity to practice the skills of the course. Very helpful indeed.
Elizabeth Lloyd-James, Camden Haven High School
An amazing leap into the challenging but possibility-filled reality of incidental counselling. Thanks heaps.
Kempsey Adventist School
Great to learn at the Accidental Counsellor Training workshop alternative ways to dealing with issues, rather than just by the textbook and having to follow the rules.
Estelle Foord, Wollumbin High School
The Accidental Counsellor Training presented different ideas, methods, and practical ways of using them.
Greg Moss, Camden Haven High School
The Accidental Counsellor Training was great. You can never have enough information / skills to create happier children / parents and teachers in life.
Paula Window, Chillingham Primary School
The Accidental Counsellor Training contained helpful insights and understanding of helping students and how to approach them with more skills. You’ll find it harder to be an effective year advisor without this Accidental Counsellor Training course.
