Trainee Counsellor Placement Programme

Welcome to our Trainee Counsellor Placement Programme page. Since you landed here you are probably interested in counselling and what we do to help survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse. Please find below all the information you need of what’s involved in the programme and how to sign up.


If you are attending a counselling/psychotherapy diploma/degree course and are interested in helping adult survivors of Childhood Sexual Abuse you have come to the right place. We run one year placement programmes with supervision where you can apply your knowledge and help survivors in a safe environment. The document Placement Eligibility, Recruitment and Assessment will tell you all the criteria you need to fulfill to be considered as an applicant as well as how to apply, the selection process and the assessments throughout the process. If you want to know what we expect of you during the sessions please read the Placement Sessions Protocol. The document Placement Responsibilities talks about the responsibilites of the Trainee and the Supervisor as well as S.H.E. UK’s responsibilities and those of Training Organisations in general.  We also have a standard Placement Contract for you to have a look at, as well as the Counsellor-in-Training Placement Agreement.

When you have decided that this might be the right placement for you, please fill in the Counsellor Application Form – MENding and follow the steps outlined in the Selection Process section of the Placement Eligibility, Recruitment and Assessment document.

Due to the large number of applicants requiring a placement and the time required to process these applications, a small fee of £10 is required with each application.

Please pay your £10 via Local Giving by clicking the button below:

If you’re a taxpayer, please make sure you tick the Gift Aid box, raising another £2.50 for our vital work.

All that remains is for us to wish you good luck in the selection process and we’re looking forward to meeting you. 🙂
