We are offering Trainee Placements

Are you a student training to become a counsellor? Complete your qualifications with us in Southampton, Hampshire and Dorset on one of our Trainee Placements.

We have placements available for 15 trainees doing their second-year diploma level 4 or above to help residents requiring support following the lockdowns.

Next generation

There’s an urgent need for counsellors now because of Covid and its lasting impact on residents.

We’re currently recruiting qualified professionals to meet this need but we’re also keen to assist with training up the next generation of practitioners too.

Student placements

We’re urging anyone who is looking for a free placement to get it touch and to join us as a Trainee Counsellor and become part of our community.

They’ll receive a comprehensive induction, be fully supported by a team of experienced counselling professionals and have access to ongoing training opportunities.

Career development

We’re committed to developing our trainees’ careers. When they’ve qualified, they’ll have the opportunity to become one of our Associate Practitioners. We offer a supportive environment, clinical supervision from experienced supervisors, regular discounted CPD sessions and training opportunities.

We also provide post-qualification Career Pathway, access to clients, paid travel expenses and access to our serviced reception areas at our venues with free coffee and tea making facilities.
