Placements

Are you a Level 4 Advanced Diploma or MSc Counselling student looking for a counselling placement opportunity offering discounted group supervision?

the lowdown provide a blended counselling service (remote & face-to-face) for 11-25 year olds. If you are successful with your placement application, we will match the age group of your client caseload to your placement requirements.

Please submit the following to: laurasimms@thelowdownnorthampton.co.uk

  • COMPLETED APPLICATION FORM – shown below
  • 10 MINUTE RECORDING – preferably a video role-play with the applicant as a counsellor in session with a ‘client’ acted by a volunteer. Applicant will demonstrate: brief contracting, counselling skills and appropriately closing a session
  • A SHORT, WRITTEN REFLECTIVE STATEMENT UPON THE ROLE-PLAY (between 250-500 words)

You will need a ‘Fit to Practise’ certificate (for remote and face-to-face practice) from your training provider and an enhanced DBS check for both young people and adults. This can be applied for through the lowdown if needed. Please note, a higher ratio of ‘Children and Young People’ placement counsellors will be accepted due to the age profile of our service.
