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 up to 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, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Systemic Therapy.

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.

To apply, please complete the Trainee Application Form and return to the east@rockclinic.org.uk for the attention of the Clinical Director between 2nd October and 19th October 2017.  Please do not send application forms before the 2nd October.

Interviews will be held at the end of October 2017 to start by December 2017.
