We came across this impassioned piece in The Guardian: “What I’m Really Thinking – a disappointed counsellor”.
Toni & Mo say: We think that counselling courses should make the transition to practice much easier. If you are in a similar position don’t despair. Your studies and personal development have given you skills and insight that no-one can ever take away from you. Find a part-time placement, a couple hours a week if necessary, and slowly increase. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and good counsellors take years to bake.
