UK counselling psychology training placements: Where are we now?

Ramsey-Wade, C. (2013) UK counselling psychology training placements: Where are we now? In: The British Psychological Society's Division of Counselling Psychology Annual Conference 2013, The Angel Hotel, Cardiff, 12-13 July 2013. Available from:



Quality training placements are crucial to delivering quality learning and teaching and to producing professional practitioner psychologists. However, accessing high-quality placements remains a struggle for trainee counselling psychologists, and there is a lack of information regarding where trainees typically work on placement and the level of support provided to students. This pilot project attempted to gather data on programme placement support and placement / training mapping. A confidential, anonymous online survey was created, and each BPS accredited counselling psychology programme was invited to complete one questionnaire. 9 of the 14 programmes took part. Results were used to generate ideas as to how training programmes and professional bodies could better support trainee counselling psychologists.
