What’s it like to be on a counselling placement at The Awareness Centre? Here’s what some of our placement therapists have to say

This is my first Counselling placement and it has been a worthwhile experience. The supervision is always on point, not only have I learnt a lot but I have received incredible and continuous support. Being at The Awareness Centre has definitely enabled me to gain confidence in my client work.

I have been on my counselling placement with the Awareness Centre for 18 months and it has given me incredible experience. I have been able to work with a wide range of clients and have learned so much both clinically and from an administration/process point of view. All the while I have been surrounded by a supportive team.


From day one I felt welcomed and appreciated as a professional though I am still training. It is a relief to find a placement that allows you to develop as a professional within a supportive environment. I have learnt a lot and still learning. Thank you TAC!


Doing my placement at The Awareness Centre has provided me great experience. In a year here I have had many different cases and learned a lot in supervision and practice.

I am placed in NHS and in Low-cost and in both of my placements The Awareness Centre has been a massive learning curve for me. The placement have helped me gain knowledge and experience through working with clients.

I’ve been at The Awareness Centre for two years now and I can truly say it has been the best way to start my counsellor journey. I’ve been supported every step of the way with an amazing supervisor and peer team and have been encouraged to experience different ways of counselling, all of which is provided within the centre itself.
