The Counselling Service actively supports the training and development of counsellors by offering a limited number of counselling placements each academic year to trainees. All trainee counsellors have reached a minimum level of competence to offer counselling and they are supported both by the qualified counselling staff within the Counselling Service and by their course providers.

A limited number of Associate Placements are also available for recently qualified or 'returning to work' counsellors who seek experience with the Counselling Service. Anyone wishing to find out more about the volunteer counselling work carried out by the Counselling Service is invited to contact us by email:
