Latest CounselPRO updates

V2018.11:        -Print students consult list in date order – with or without notes, between any two dates .  (this also applies to the report for all students between any two dates.)

-There is now an automatic monthly reminder for backing up the database. (On Counsellor 1’s program only).  The CounselPRO Backup Database system is important to run as it compacts the database and fixes small problems as well.

-New Minimize and Maximize buttons.

V2018.9:          -New Classification Filter checkbox to enable Consult List and Student List reports of students seen for one particular classification.

-A new Graph has been added so you can compare three years of data for one particular classification.

V2018.4:          -There is now the ability the change a Counsellors level1 password from within the program if they have forgotten it. You will need to login as the CounselPRO Administrator, then go to the Business Setup Screen.  Click on the Counsellors Name that you want to change the password for, the click on the LOCK icon, and follow the prompts from there.

-Instead of manually going through all students who have left or are in Y14 to check if they are still classed as active or not, there is a button to remove all Active tags from these students.  You can always go back and make active the one or two students who have left that you still see.

-You can filter the students by Year Level as well now.

-There is now a filter for the detail1 field.  You may want to highlight various students at risk for example .  This filter may help with that.  The filters stay active for printing as well (Student List). Eg If you want to print a list of all students with the same text in the detail1 field, you click on the filter button to the right of the detail1 record, then click on Student List to just print those students.

-You can now printout all the Consultation fields you have listed.  Go to the Consultation Field window then click on the printer icon.

-You can now add automatic (or one off) Headings for each consultation.  (A Template)

These changes are also detailed in the latest manual.

Thank you to all the Counsellors who have asked questions and made suggestions about improvements that could be made in the program.  With your help the program will continue to get more and more useful to all Counsellors.

Client Recommendations

  • Testimonial from Villanova College (Aus) after 3 years of using CounselPRO

    CounselPRO by Microsale. For schools or private practice.

     

    As a school counsellor of 20years experience I have found the careful [and secure] keeping of records of more and more concern. The amount of paper build up in the office is incredible and then there are all the records of those clients who are no longer active. I have tended to send them to the past school records secure area but of course some students [who I’ve seen in grade 5 – when our school begins] might go dormant and then resurface in later years so I need to keep those records accessible for at least 8/9 years. And then there is the various paper reports [WISC’s, WIAT’s, Conner’s etc]. All in all I’d gradually come to the decision that I need to make the dive into the 21st century and go paperless as far as possible. So, with my colleague [who is a psychologist], I began to look around.

     

    It wasn’t a quick, or easy search [Google may be your friend but, despite the reputation it can’t give you the answer when you don’t even know the questions!] but eventually we were able to settle on a program that we thought would meet our needs – and you can even download a trial version.

     

    That was two years ago and we both think it was one of the best decisions we made. The program is called CounselPRO and comes from New Zealand [all but local!] in both school and private practice versions. It already met most of our needs but it was also customisable which is a real bonus.

     

    Rather than try to explain it all let me list some of the features.

     

    • Fully searchable database
    • Ability to choose between active/non-active and all databases.
    • Future appointment making and past consultation recording
    • Full client details data page [including facility to include a picture – a bonus for those of us who have trouble putting faces to names or vice a versa]
    • Ability to print a complete client report of all sessions.
    • Ability to scan images, reports or add any other electronic files [such as e-mail] to unique client folder.
    • Ability to classify [and even sub classify] client presenting issues [eg Grief & Loss – sibling]
    • Ability to graph [bar, pie, line] entire client group in any particular year according to classification, sub-classification, consultation type, ethnicity, referral – and many others. Also possible to do a comparison graph over years of practice.
    • Ability to produce reports of same.
    • Ability to customise business details, consultation fields, appointment times etc.
    • Note writing facility with the usual formatting, spell check etc.
    • Built in back up / copy file facility.
    • And more that either don’t apply to my circumstance or I haven’t discovered yet!

     

    Add to all that excellent service and backup support [the owner of the company can link to your computer if you wish it to help sort out those issues you might have on a time by time basis using a program called Team-viewer].

     

    I don’t often write a testimonial but this program is too good to keep to myself. I’d also like to say that I receive no benefits from this review [other than know I’m possibly doing my fellow counsellors a good turn.
