Communication and awareness training and phone counsellor apprenticeship
November 2013 — December 2014
Personal development and strategies for effective communication. Suicidality and child protection covered. A nine day intensive course facilitated by Judith Macdonald. I was accepted into the programme as an apprentice and have begun the volunteering process at Youthline Otago. I am now a solo phone counsellor taking calls and texts from people who use the service.
