Everyday Counselling Skills – Perth

This two-day training course provides participants with the opportunity to practice using a range of tools that can be applied to a wide range of issues, in their practice as well as in their daily lives.  Suitable for staff who want to be emotionally supportive in their work role or for people in the general community in their personal roles. 

Many non-counselling professionals find themselves in day-to-day situations where they are called to support another person emotionally, such as responding to someone experiencing distress, anger, confusion, anxiety or fear.  Participants will learn how to establish and build safe and positive relationships and provide solution focused responses, as well as providing brief interventions and understanding when to refer.

This course will support participants to:

  • * Understand what is meant by ‘everyday counselling’ as distinct from formal counselling.
  • * Have a working knowledge of the Stages of Change model and understand when to refer.
  • * Build skills including relationship-building, communication, strategic questioning and feedback.
  • * Provide solution-focused responses and strategies and encourage help-seeking where appropriate.
  • * Engage in brief interventions using the Frames model to support clients.
  • * Integrate their learning from this course into their practice and/or their own lives.
