Placement and Supervision for Counsellors

Nottingham Counselling Service (NCS) works in partnership with a wide range of academic and vocational institutions to provide:

Our placements are offered to second year students studying counselling and psychotherapy at diploma and above level.

All counselling placements provide continuous assessment, line management and supervision whilst developing practical skills as a professional practitioner working with a portfolio of clients.

New students joining NCS on counselling placement will be required to make a two year commitment.  We will be offering twenty four months contracts.  Attendance at supervision is mandatory and meets the guidelines and requirements of the BACP code of ethics and practice.The total commitment counsellors will be asked to make to NCS will be an average of 8 hours per week, which will take into account both client work and supervision requirement. 

The environment at Nottingham Counselling Service offers great opportunities to link skills and theoretical learning to professional therapeutic practice, as well as offering ongoing networking opportunities and support. 

All placements are invited to attend all in-house training events and workshops.  Continual Professional Development (CPD) is encouraged at all times to meet BACP membership and accreditation guidelines.The supervision provided will consist of both individual and group supervision. 

We also invite suggestions for future training and workshop events from placements. 

Students will be expected to make a financial contribution of £60 per month towards the cost of supporting their academic activities, payable by standing order for the whole duration of the placement.
