Tokyo English Life Line – Phone Counselor Training
Based on the counseling philosophy of Carl Rogers, the program trains volunteers from many walks of life to give their time to help people cope with a wide range of issues ranging from culture shock and anxiety, to depression, sexual harassment, rape, and suicide.
Although I did not go on to become one of their telephone counselors, I greatly benefited from their excellent training program! The trainers are all very experienced, and have a great deal of patience when they guide course participants. It was totally worth the small fee they charge. I would recommend the course to anyone interested in personal growth, or professional psychoanalysis.
