Lifeline Canberra is the original creator of the Accidental Counsellor course. This two-day program has been developed for people in virtually any role, who find themselves in situations where counselling or empathetic communication is required.
The program provides participants with a range of tried and tested counselling skills that work to create effective communication and deescalate clients who are in crisis e.g.
- highly distressed
- manipulative, or
- need assistance for a mental health issue.
