What can a counsellor on placement expect?

New students joining Nottingham Counselling Service on a counselling placement will be required to make a two-year commitment. Attendance at supervision is mandatory and the total commitment counsellors will be asked to make is eight hours per week, which will take into account both client work and supervision requirements.


Students are expected to make a financial contribution of £60 per month towards the cost of their support and development, payable by monthly standing order.
