If you are wondering what will happen at your first session with a counsellor?  See this page

The BACP publish some documents about counselling, try their website. Unfortunately they seem to move regularly so I cant publish links directly to them. 

Here is a useful two minute video giving some statistics about counselling needs and response to counselling.  Attitudes to Counselling & Psychotherapy – 2014/15

Counselling Supervision

​​I am an Ascentis qualified supervisor working within the BACP Ethical Framework guidelines. I regularly provide supervision to counsellors and counsellors in training.  This can be, as needed or at set intervals and either in person or over the phone. I can re-act quickly to your request for support.  I have been doing this type of work for 5 years to groups and individuals. If you need a supervisor, then please contact me to discuss. It would be best to meet for a ‘no commitment’ meeting to establish that we can work together. 

My fees for Supervision vary according to your requirements. I do give a discount to counsellors in training. Please ask.

Do you want to be a Counsellor?

​​I often get asked about becoming a counsellor. I hope I inspire others.

There is considerable work in training to become a counsellor / therapist. If you are taking part-time courses it is likely to take you at least 3-4 years. There will be many essays and a lot of reading. You will need to be in supervision for the time of your course. I can help you with this (see above).

Here are some of the major training organisations providing counselling courses where qualifications are widely recognised and who publish details about the courses they provide. The two most researched ones are probably BACP and CPCAB.
