Here at BAPCA we have been considering how to improve the lives of counselling trainees (we also have other things in the pipeline for members, as well as other topics that we are working on).
LJ, as a person who frequents various counselling-related places, commonly sees students asking 'where can i get a placement?', and so far, hasn't seen a directory of placements for the UK. So, as BAPCA, we decided that one of the biggest things we could do to help counseling students, would be to start a directory.
We need your help. This directory is empty so far (save for LJ's placement offer). We need you to populate it. It doesn't need to be person-centered only, it just needs to accept person-centered trainees. Even if you don't know all the details, please put in what you can, and we will check the entries and add what we can find. You can view LJ's placement entry to see what it will look like. Leave blank any fields you don't want to fill in, but the more detail you can give, the better for trainees.
The more placements we can add nationwide, the more students we can help. It also means that if you're a small service that doesn't get much attention, you should end up with a wider range of applications to choose from, which should hopefully give you a better fit of trainee counsellor.
Will you take five minutes to add your placement information?
