Counselling Skills For Accidental Counsellor

Counselling Skills For The Accidental Counsellor

In your workplace, or personal life, do you connect with people, clients or customers who are sometimes upset, distressed, sad, hurt, lonely or simply need someone to listen to them? If you’re not a trained counsellor, it can be difficult to manage these situations with confidence.

Accidental Counselling refers to situations where emotional support is given by one person to another person and where the person giving support is not a trained counsellor.

The Counselling Skills for the Accidental Counsellor workshop is practical, interactive and will benefit anyone required to provide regular, or occasional, informal support and counselling. By the end of the workshop, you will develop skills in the following areas:.

  • Effective listening skills
  • Asking the right questions
  • Empathetic communication
  • Focusing others towards solutions
  • Positive body language
  • Ending conversations respectfully
  • Assisting others to consider new possibilities
  • Restraining the urge to ‘fix’, or solve, another person’s problem

Cost: The cost to attend a public workshop is $297.00 per person (inclusive of GST).  Concession prices will be considered on an individual basis for those with financial constraints. Group bookings (five or more people enrolling in the one booking), will receive a 10% discount.
