CounsellingWorx recognises that students undertaking a professional counselling qualification may need to complete 30 hours of personal therapy. Having gone through counselling training ourselves, each of our professionals have personal experience of how difficult and challenging a qualification can be and how personal counselling can impact you as a trainee counsellor. We are able to offer person-centred therapists, who are registered members of the BACP organisation to help support you as you reflect on your own processes and explore anything that may emerge during your training.
CounsellingWorx understand that students undertaking a counselling qualification need to complete a practical placement, which requires supervision. CounsellingWorx therapists undertake regular supervision themselves and understand the importance of finding the right supervisor. Our supervisors are all BACP members, professionally trained to offer different supervision models, and will work with you during your first session to identify the model that will enable you to gain the most from your supervision, whilst also providing a safe space for reflective and professional development.
CounsellingWorx is founded upon these key principles.
Your personal therapy and supervision during training is there to:

CounsellingWorx has been absolutely brilliant with me this last year. I came to them as a trainee counsellor and the support and care I have been given throughout has been amazing. I cannot recommend this service enough.
As a trainee counsellor, I have found the skills and professionalism of CounsellingWorx second to none. They are always ready to assist with any challenge I bring to the table, giving expert guidance in all aspects of the course as well as Counselling Standards. I would recommend CounsellingWorx for anyone requiring personal therapy not only as a student counsellor but also for any personal needs.
CounsellingWorx have been very supportive in my counselling sessions and academically. As a counselling student myself, to have a counsellor who understands fully the position I am in and how demanding the workload is has been invaluable. I would highly recommend.
Working with CounsellingWorx has been great, the approach is very relaxed and personable. I look forward to my sessions and has a trainee counsellor, I have received support every step of my journey. I would recommend CounsellingWorx to any future trainee counsellors or anyone considering the possibility of counselling sessions in general. I always left sessions feeling lighter.
I am a trainee person-centred counsellor and I participated in 20 hours of personal therapy with CounsellingWorx. I would highly recommend this service as it is fantastic and highly professional.
CounsellingWorx helped me to develop my skills as a trainee counsellor as well as allowing me space to work on myself in order to become a better counsellor.
