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

I had my placement with TAC for just over a year now and I have learnt so much and grown so much as a therapist. There is always someone there to support you, in particular my clinical supervisors have been absolute gems. I am so much more of a confident and capable counsellor coming out of this placement a year on and very grateful.


I thoroughly enjoyed my placement with The Awareness Centre, it was fantastic experience and a great opportunity to put into practice all the theory and skills learnt on the Diploma.


I’ve had a number of placements during my years of training and can honestly say that the one I had at TAC (NHS and LCCS) was the most structured, supportive, friendly and professional – all ideal and reassuring ingredients for a novice therapist! There are many valuable things I’ve learnt from TAC that will provide the foundations for my own private practice moving forwards.


I was very well supported at this placement to gain the skills and experience I needed to develop as a counsellor. Supervision is professional, supportive and educational. Excellent front of house staff ensured I was always assigned clients.


I have found The Awareness Centre very supportive throughout my journey with them. The constructive feedback from my supervisors and guidance provided by the Operational Manual has also been invaluable in my development as I make plans for moving into private practice.


I have been in a placement with TAC already for several months and I am really enjoying working here.There is a steady stream of clients, calm working environment, great support from my supervisor and my peer supervisees.

Special thanks to the front house team for their support, positive attitude and help.
