Professional Practice for Counsellors

In this section we explore the building blocks that need to be in place to ensure a good and professional practice for counsellors. This section is a useful resource for student counsellors who may be preparing for, or already be in, a placement counselling post. We will be looking at working within the framework of a code of ethics and how this might influence our practice. We will review the importance of regular supervision and how this impacts on our ability to deliver our service to our clients and evaluate how and why referrals are made. Lastly we explore how the law of the land influences our practice as counsellors.
