Event description



For Anyone Not Trained As A Counsellor But Often Find Themselves in Counselling Situations By Accident.

As an Accidental Counsellor you are not a qualified Counsellor and you don’t do therapy. However, regardless of title or qualification you are an Accidental Counsellor.

Accidental Counsellors are people who find they are placed in a counselling/mentoring role by accident, as a result of requests for help from friends, colleagues, clients or others.

THE ACCIDENTAL COUNSELLOR TRAINING will focus around 3 core themes:

  • Wellbeing

  • Connection

  • Influence

Accidental Counsellor Training Model

As an Accidental Counsellor a focus on self care is essential because it allows you to connect to the stories of pain and suffering you hear from the people you support.

It's with this deep connection that safety and trust increases and this allows the person to "hold" onto the Solution Focused Communication you will use to help influence them in taking action on their "next best step".

Areas covered in the training include:

- Evidence based Wellbeing strategies from the field of Positive Psychology

- Connection processes including reflective listening and the Perception Process

- How to influence using Solution Focused Communication

- and much more!

The Accidental Counsellor has been conducted all over Australia for 10 years, receiving stellar reviews from all in attendance. Book your spot now to ensure you don't miss out.

What a fantastic training course! We have had nothing but positive feedback and I think you reached deep into the hearts and minds of many of our volunteers.

Anna Partridge - Wayside Chapel

The one-day workshop I attended and the online videos I watched prior to attending have given me so much comfort and so many strategies, rationales and frameworks that I can use in both my professional life and my personal life.
