The associate counsellor programme
is a unique programme for qualified counsellors who work in the psychodynamic or psychoanalytic traditions, designed to further develop a range of skills and capacities that are important in moving towards independent practice or working in an organisation. Applicants should have achieved a Diploma-level qualification with significant clinical experience.

The programme runs for 12 months beginning in September 2017. Successful applicants will become GCS Associate Counsellors and gain invaluable experience working within a well-established counselling service.

Associate Counsellors will have the opportunity to work with a range of clients and presenting problems. Weekly (42 weeks per year) clinical supervision is provided as part of the programme. Associate counsellors will also attend a seminar programme that is designed to develop skills and capabilities and increase awareness of what it means to be a professional counsellor.
