Accidental Counsellor

Denmark - Tuesday 25 January, 9am-12:30pm

Have you ever been caught without the words to help a friend, client, customer or co-worker who was dealing with a distressing situation or opening up to you and sharing their problems?

This half day workshop will provide you with the knowledge and skills to help you respond to them in a safe way, without feeling you have to advise. You'll also be clearer about what to say or do so that you don't take on their problems yourself.

This workshop will:

  • Explore the differences between helping and rescuing
  • Define the role (and limits) of an 'Accidental Counsellor'
  • Look at this model including desirable traits and skills of someone in this role
  • Explore the significance of self-awareness, emotions, inner critic, personal perception filters and empathy
  • Learn the important aspects of specific situations including referring on
  • Self Care strategies in the process
