Accidental Counsellor Training Dubbo 2020 | Friday, 16. October 2020
For Anyone Not Trained As A Counsellor But Often Find Themselves in Counselling Situations By Accident.
About this Event
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/coaching role by accident, as a result of requests for help from friends, colleagues, clients or others.
THE ACCIDENTAL COUNSELLOR TRAINING will focus on 3 core themes:
As an Accidental Counsellor a focus on your wellbeing and self care is essential to avoid burnout.
A focus on your wellbeing and self-care allows you to connect to the stories of pain and suffering you hear from the people you support.
We connect to people's stories of pain and suffering by listening and acknowledging and validity what their experience.
It's with this deep connection that safety and trust increases and the person begins to calm down. Then if appropriate you can ask questions to help the person discover their "next best step".
Using practical "Solution Focused" questions and language patterns means you are not giving advice but more facilitating and empowering the person to take their next best step.
