At some stage over their careers, many people will find themselves needing to support or help a colleague or a friend who is in difficult circumstances. Counselling skills can often assist in the management of the colleague or friend’s emotional response to an issue or event. Other situations where a person may need to be the “casual counsellor” include helping a staff member who is a direct report, helping a student or parent in an education setting or assisting a client in a non-clinical situation.

Learning outcomes

By the end of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • identify when a colleague/staff member/client is not coping emotionally
  • apply knowledge of how to decide when to intervene or assist
  • demonstrate basic counselling skills including listening, using empathy, questioning and reframing
  • apply strategies for their own reactions and the need for self-care.

Ideal for

Staff in a range of workplaces including the community, education, health and business sectors who may need to support colleagues or clients.
