Accidental Counsellor Training Course

This 4-hour training course will give participants the confidence and the skills necessary to support someone in their moment of need, and to be able to refer them to the most appropriate support.

A Counsellor By Chance

Participants are not expected to literally become Counsellors. But their empathic and respectful response – at a time when a client, patient, colleague, mate or family member may be in crisis and in need of support – can positively affect outcomes for the individual involved.

The course equips individuals to:

Recognise, Respond and Refer
