Talking about Counselling

DVD2006 82 Minutes

Four counsellors talk about their work from a practical point of view.

What's it like to be a counsellor? How do you get your first client? What are the differences between private work and agency work? How do you decide how much to charge? How do you find a good supervisor, and what happens when you have difficulties with them? What do you do if your client is too distressed to engage in an assessment procedure? What about burn-out and self care? Contracts and boundaries? Seeing clients in their own homes? Meeting clients in social settings? Endings?

Three counsellors with many thousands of counselling hours behind them and one student at the start of her career, talk about their work, their dilemmas and their experiences.
