The Place2Be Foundation Course and Postgraduate Student: Sue Brown
''I would highly recommend The Place2Be training to anyone who is thinking about taking up counselling children. Their courses are thought out, work well within the school environment and provide a safe framework for all involved.
While I was supported in increasing my knowledge base, I was also encouraged to expand my skills and to try different approaches. Through working with more experienced counsellors, I developed my techniques and gained a better understanding of myself so that I could be more effective in the counselling environment. It has changed me on so many levels and helped me feel equipped to begin the next phase of my career.''
