Small Title, BIG NEWS...

The last couple of years has brought so many challenges for the world as a whole and as a team we have worked hard to do our bit to support others throughout the pandemic as best as we could. We learnt how to use zoom in  order to continue to teach our classes online (that was quite an education) and we continued to work with clients both in person and online intermittently when it was safe to do so. 

Challenges give us the opportunity to reflect... and I have made the decision not to continue offering counselling training at Chapters after the completion of our current professional level courses. This means that we will finish all of our courses by July 2023. We will run a final Level 2 and 3 course starting in September 2022 for those who wish to have a solid foundation to their training journey, but they will need to move on to professional level training at another organisation/college/university after their first year with us. 

This has been a huge decision to make, especially after we have been training here for so long and I have been training counsellors since 2002. However, we are going to continue to work in a counselling capacity and offer all the usual counselling services, clinical supervision and non managerial supervision work. Chapters Counselling & Training will become Chapters Counselling. The show will go on!

I have been very privileged to work with so many wonderful students over the years and I am super proud of the contribution to the counselling world that those ex students are now making as they go about their work as skilled, compassionate and ethical counsellors. It is most definitely time for us to enjoy the end of our 2 current Diploma groups and then for us to hang up our whiteboard markers!
