The whole family loves the time when we go to Victoria to present the Accidental Counsellor training because we see family we love and care for.
This year (2012) I presented the Accidental Counsellor Training in Dandenong on the 16th and 17th of April and Geelong on the 19th and 20th of April.
Anna’s birthday was on the 16th so we took the opportunity to go out and have a meal together.
Here are some testimonials from attendees at the Geelong Training
The Accidental Counsellor Training was useful. The material has relevance to what I do. Pacing of delivery was great.

This Accidental Counsellor Training was the most useful inservice I have been on – questioning techniques on how to ask open questions so the parent/student teachers answer their own problems.
