Trainee Counsellors & Psychologists*:

Trainee counsellors are in the final stages of their counselling training (level 4), having previously completed level 2 and level 3 qualifications in counselling skills. They typically have prior counselling experience and experience of supporting people with mental health difficulties. They are able to deliver support for mild to moderate level difficulties (e.g. low mood, anxiety, stress, bereavement etc). They are not able to provide support for severe and complex difficulties (e.g. psychosis, suicidal ideation etc). 

All clinical work provided by trainee therapists is closely supervised and monitored by highly specialist senior clinicians (qualified psychologists with a doctoral degree).  Sessions with trainee therapists are delivered in the same 1:1 format (just the therapist and client present), however to support with the therapists development some sessions may be taped / recorded for the supervisor to review. This is always by prior agreement with the client and the client has the right to decline this.
