Practice Training and Supervision


Serenity Counselling offer a range of services to student counsellors, practising therapists and supervisors. If you are a student we can provide you with a well-supervised and supportive practice placement where you can build up your hours and hone your skills in a safe environment.




Student Placements


We pride ourselves on providing a supportive and nurturing environment to help you in your final stretch of training. Please see below our requirements for students:


All students must have:

  • current DBS Check,
  • membership to the BACP or the UKCP
  • insurance


Students need to be able to show evidence that they have been signed off by their course leader prior to training.


All students will agree to having internal supervision – depending on their course requirements, either one hour per fortnight or 1.5 hours per month.


All students will attend obligatory monthly PD groups organised by Serenity either in person or online.


All those working remotely will need to be able to attend face to face sessions with their clients at least once a month.


All students must have started their personal therapy and must have had a minimum of 10 sessions before commencing placement. After 10 sessions ongoing therapy is preferable, however, other arrangements can be discussed.
