EACS accepts applications for voluntary counsellor placements throughout the year. We hold recruitment workshops or group interviews spread throughout the year. We do not have paid counselling positions.
We also now offer two assessor placements a year to counsellors already at EACS who would like the opportunity to broaden their experience while also earning a nominal remuneration. Placement assessors are part of the assessors team which currently comprises 5 qualified practitioners, led by the Director of Assessment.
We have up to 20 supervision groups offering monthly support to our placement counsellors. The groups are eclectic, with both counsellors and supervisors coming from a variety of training modalities. This provides a rich mixture of approach and experience, allowing our practitioners to share and learn from one anotherís different style. Our supervisors are senior, qualified practitioners.
We organise an interesting Continuing Professional
Development Seminar programme each year. The seminars are a good opportunity for
people to meet other practitioners, supervisors and assessors as well as enhance
learning and development. These seminars are also open to friends and
colleagues outside of EACS but EACS practitioners pay a reduced rate to
Our 2010 Seminar Programme will be listed on the site in the New Year.
