TRAINING AND PLACEMENTS

Here at Empathy, we believe in promoting self-care and creating healthy habits for ourselves and we know that the best changes come from ourselves. However, we also value the efforts of the counsellors and therapists that work hard with clients every day. We believe that in order to continue the great strides made today we need to continue to invest in the future counsellors that train to help others in the future. Therefore we provide fully inclusive training and offer trainee counsellors the opportunity and means to gain valuable client hours they need to complete their courses.

Our training workshops and courses are for anyone who wants a better understanding of the subject or a new learning experience. Our choice of courses vary including:

 

Suicide and Self-Harm

Drug and Alcohol Abuse

Bereavement and Loss

Self Esteem

Mental Health Awareness

Sexual Abuse and Exploitation
