Trainee and volunteer bereavement counsellors
Alice House provided its first ever placements for student counsellors in 2007 and although they can only take a small number of students each year, they are committed to ensuring that those students have the best placement experience.
Jan Grocott, Head of Counselling & Support Services said, “Placements are provided for student counsellors who are in their final year of the Foundation Degree in Counselling. We provide student counsellors with a safe, supportive team environment where they receive excellent Clinical Supervision, ongoing learning around the topic of grief and loss and client’s to work with.”
“Sometimes our placement counsellors are able to stay on as volunteer counsellors once their training has finished. If we have the capacity to be able to continue to meet their needs in relation to client hours, training and supervision it is a privilege to be able to see them continue to further to grow and develop their skills as a practitioner.”
“We very much value the volunteer counsellors in our team, without them we would not be able to continue to meet the needs and demands of our very busy and much needed community bereavement service.”
