"As a senior accredited member of the BACP I was pleased to be able to advertise my skills and counselling service on The Counselling Directory website.
At a minimal cost I was able to receive queries from across the country which were appropriate to my fields of expertise. I came from a teaching background so initially I worked with children and families. I found that schools also accessed the website and from that, I gained employment in a number of different schools which I found interesting and rewarding. I went further in schools to develop courses and schemes including one which I named Talking Through Art which led to my giving a presentation at the BACP Conference. I believe other schools went on to take up this work too.
Through the Counselling Directory I also received work with children and adults with learning disabilities and I feel I made inroads into creating positive attitudes towards them.
As my career developed I went on to work with adults and gained employment with the charity Rethink Mental Illness.
So, all in all I have found that my connection with the Counselling Directory consolidated and developed my career. It gave me confidence to pursue and extend it.
I altered my profile as the years progressed and was pleased with the support I received in doing this. The website also changed as time went by and I was continually kept up to date.
"Great service. I have always found it to be extremely helpful. The whole concept of the Counselling Directory has been so very beneficial in building up my practice."
"I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the people at Counselling Directory that I have contacted and the help received in trying to raise my profile to attract more business. I would also like to praise the Happiful magazine having enjoyed it throughout the year. Thank you."
"The team at CD are absolutely superb...simply amazing, always helpful, cheery and lovely to talk with. All inquiries are dealt with in a timely professional manner."
"I think you provide an efficient and friendly service - and I'd have no hesitation in highly recommending your service to my colleagues."
"I have had so much success with my posting. It has helped my career immensely!"
"Counselling Directory is really helping me build my practise and I'm nearly fully booked so many thanks to you all for your hard work."
"Out of all the registers, the Counselling Directory has yielded the most clients. The staff have always been super helpful and can guide you when establishing your profile, should you need any help. What's also interesting is that there's a statistic bank showing you how many folk click or visit your profile page month on month. Thank you Counselling Directory."
"I have really appreciated the backup and support. I'm glad I signed up."
"I do want to take this opportunity to thank everyone at Counselling Directory: your customer service has been second to none, and I shall undoubtedly be using your services again in the future. The fact that I am suspending my profile through excess work is itself a testimonial to how effective you have been!"
