Clinical Placements

In order to be considered for a clinical therapeutic placement at TAC, counsellors, psychotherapists or counselling psychologist are required to have at least 65 clinical supervised hours of working with adults in a one to one setting, experience of working clinically within other organisations and have been in personal therapy for a minimum of one year.

All of our NHS clinical work is provided within one of the GP surgeries in Lambeth or HMP Brixon. All our long term clinical work is provided at TAC and we offer a Low Cost Counselling Service.

Please note that clinical placements are restricted to therapists in the later stages of BACP accredited, UKCP or BPS registered trainings, or for those who have qualified and are building up their clinical hours to apply for professional accreditation or registration. Our placement is known as a ‘Training and Internship Placement’ because we teach and support you and your clinical work to prepare you for employed or self-employed work.

We are also interested in candidates who can offer counselling in a second language to support our Multilingual Counselling Service.  We are also interested in therapists to work with our LGBT clientele and within our Children and Adolescent Counselling Service.

If you wish to make a preliminary enquiry about a clinical placement, please email our Counselling Coordinator, a copy of your CV specifying your training and one-to-one experience as a practitioner. If your CV meets our criteria, you will be invited into our next available group interview and this process will take 90 minutes. You will be notified on the same day via email about the outcome of your interview.

For further details please visit the Clinical Placement page.

What people say about working at TAC

Thank you to The Awareness Centre  for providing such a warm and welcoming experience for my counselling clients. It can be a daunting thought that you are asking for help perhaps for the first time in your life, your team make that hurdle a gentle and caring experience from the enquiry process to the allocation of suitable counsellor, and when they arrive patients encounter a very unique place with light spacious and extremely comfortable rooms. This is so important as it gives the sense of being in the right place before the therapy has even  begun!

What people say

2 years ago I requested a referral from my GP for NHS counselling to try to improve my self esteem and ease in social situations / relationships. Prior to going I planned on just taking up the 6 ‘free’ sessions on the NHS and was sceptical/unsure of what was involved. Caz straight away gained my trust with her genuine concern for my wellbeing, her friendly and non-judgemental approach  and her skill at quickly understanding who I was and where I wanted to go.
