the Rock Clinic

Trainee Counselling and Psychotherapy Scheme

For those who are currently studying on a recognised Level 7 Postgraduate Diploma in Counselling or Psychotherapy course and who have completed a basic skills or introductory course, we are able to offer training placements for two years.  This is designed to give you the 100 hours supervised clinical practice generally required by most local and national courses. 

Trainee applicants should be studying one of more of the following modalities: Psychodynamic and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT).

All clients are offered an initial screening interview by a member of the assessment team, and taping is permitted subject to consent by the client.  You will be expected to see up to 3 clients per week, attend fortnightly individual supervision, keep appropriate records and abide at all times by the BACP ‘Guidelines on good practice in counselling and psychotherapy’.

Supervision is free and provided in house from one of the Clinic’s supervisory team - all of whom have a recognised qualification in clinical supervision.

Please complete the attached application form and return to the Clinic in electronic format.

Applications will be received between October 1st and 10am on October 29th 2018.  Please do not return any application forms outside these dates.

Shortlisting and interviews will take place during November for a December start date.  Please note that this is a 2-year placement.
