Counselling Presentations

Over to past 25+ years I have delivered presentations to key industry groups including but not limited to Addiction Conferences, Mental health Forums, Australian College of Applied Psychology Alumni, Lifeline Counsellors (PD) and Financial Counsellors (FCAN students).

I have found that participants are eager to learn more on the topics provided and appreciate the case studies provided. I have also found that participants bring their own experience to the topics covered being it either themselves or as a family member.

Having said this there is a self-reflective element with these presentations which is respectively acknowledged by the presenter.

Throughout the presentations there is an interactive element for the participants and a workshop element if requested for all presentations which can extend to a full day.

Topics Covered Are:
Addiction & Trauma
Trauma and Addiction Recovery (second stage recovery)
Addiction – Grief and Loss – Trauma
Trauma Informed Care Practice
