WellElder can provide training related to positive ageing and counselling, and supporting older clients.
We have developed training packages in response to stakeholder needs and interests. For example, we facilitated group training sessions on working with challenging residents, and on the transition for new rest home residents, and responding to the residents’ emotional needs for staff in rest homes.
Our counsellor training is run on demand depending on availability and numbers.
As the only New Zealand specialist counselling service for older people, we are keen to share our skills and experience. We welcome opportunities to contribute to counselling training and professional development around working with older clients.
We provide supervision to counsellors and other professionals working with older clients. This can be for regular supervision or consultation about a particular case or situation.
