Placement with Us

It can be difficult to find a placement at the beginning of your counselling training, as spaces are often limited. Our aim is to help trainees through the exciting journey of qualifying to be a counsellor or psychotherapist.

Cherry Tree Therapy Centre has a number of placements for counselling students to help them meet their course requirements.

We recruit throughout the year so please email us your CV.

Our Role

Clients come to us through various avenues. If they are on a low income or unemployed we may refer them to our low-cost counselling service. Once their needs have been assessed we may refer them to a trainee if deemed suitable. 

Our close-knit team provides students with the support and guidance they need.

We even have free monthly group supervision to enhance learning and professional development.

We have students from:

  • University of East London
  • Regents University
  • The Sherwood Psychotherapy Training Institute
  • Epping College
  • Redbridge College
  • The Minster Centre
