Training Calendar 2019

Start: 01-01-2019

End: 31-12-2019

About the facilitator

Natalie Bossi has an Honours degree in Psychology and a post- graduate diploma in Addictions Care from UCT.  She provided training for the South African Responsible Gambling Foundation for eight years. She is a trained and experienced telephone counsellor and a highly experienced adult trainer and facilitator. 

She has also obtained a diploma in Motivational Interviewing through the University of Stellenbosch and has trained many in this invaluable communication method, which aids people in behaviour change.

Natalie is a qualified reflexologist and Kundalini Yoga Instructor. She has worked in the financial industry for companies like Old Mutual, UAL Merchant Bank and Investec.  

She joined Cape Town Drug Counselling Centre early 2017, where her focus has been on providing Motivational Interviewing training in the context of substance use disorder treatment and also providing psycho-education in substance abuse and addictive behaviour. Since then further additions have been made to the training menu in response to requests from practitioners in the field of addiction treatment. A workshop on drug testing has been added and talks or presentations on substance use for youth and adults. These have been presented in the corporate environment and at schools, colleges and other educational institutions.  

As a trainer, Natalie, adheres to adult learning methodologies, which she acquired from her experiences of training in a multitude of settings (from conference halls to the kitchen in a sports betting shop) and wanting to ensure that her training was accessible and relevant to as many persons as possible; be it security staff, cleaners, dealers or CEO’s, or, from students to qualified and experienced practitioners. 

Therefore her style of training is ideally suited and aligned with the requirements of CPD training, i.e. they have to be in accordance with adult learning methodologies, which, among other things, have to be participative and experiential. It is her abiding aim to make every training experience valuable on a practical level, substantial and challenging on a theoretical level, and enjoyable and uplifting on an experiential or phenomenological level.
