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

The interview process and induction was delivered by a well-structured team of coordinators, administrators, team leaders, and managers who supported me with system training, risk management, and building inductions. The support I also gained from my supervisors and peer trainees brought rich and varied learning experiences.

The ethos of the company reflects the inclusivity and diversity of its employees, volunteers, clients and service users. I owe special thanks to Seda and Rushna who supported me with training and client/supervision allocation within the low-cost service, and Gail and Matthew for extra support within the NHS service.

I had a great journey and rewarding experience strengthening my counselling skills at The Awareness Centre.


Having a placement with NHS was a great experience. The counselling coordinator was amazing and always ready to solve any issues or concerns in a calm and professional way. I was pleasantly surprised about that. This experience made me grow as a counsellor and as an individual. Great team! Thank you guys


I am very happy with my experience at TAC.
I have always been supported by the management regarding admin or work issues.
I would recommend the service offered to clients and I am glad to say that the Centre offers the best environment for their therapist too.


I’m really happy in my placement at the Awareness Centre. I feel I get good support in my supervision group and through my supervisor. The clients have been amazing and I’m learning so much.


I have been very impressed with high level of professionalism and integrity that I have experienced as a placement therapist at TAC. In particular the attention to detail, commitment to upholding boundaries, welcoming staff and clean yet comfortable therapy rooms. I’m looking forward to continuing  to work in partnership with TAC, hopefully into the long term.


Thank you TAC for granting me the opportunity to work with clients face to face.
