Accidental counsellor

If you deal with personal disclosures by your client group on a daily basis, there may be times when you find yourself playing the role of a counsellor. If you don’t have a counselling qualification and would like some understanding around boundaries, then this training is for you.

While it will give you some useful counselling frameworks, it’s not designed to provide a professional qualification. It will also give you the skills and confidence to identify if your client needs to be referred to a behavioural or mental health specialist.

What you will learn

  • Understand what an accidental counsellor is
  • Practical skills such as basic listening
  • Essential do’s and don’ts of accidental counselling
  • How to manage disclosures and suicidal thoughts


This course is offered as a series of tailored units depending on the depth of training required. The cost is for a group of up to 20 participants.

  • One-hour taster – $300
  • Half day intensive – $800
  • Full day comprehensive – $1,500
