National Counsellors’ Day Awards

Celebrating YOU!

As part of National Counsellors’ Day 2020 we will be trailing the UK’s first National Counselling Awards. Counsellors will have the opportunity to nominate themselves or another counsellor, organisation or training establishment, to receive an award via numerous categories as listed below.

You can read more about the awards process, categories and make a nomination here.

Why awards?

Simple… we want to celebrate counsellors. We feel that it is important to celebrate the varied and wonderful work that we do and to recognise our achievements within the counselling profession, as many other mental health professions already do, at their own unique awards ceremonies. Celebrating counsellors matters because we are highly qualified and skilled professionals who work out of the public eye, making huge differences in peoples lives. We believe that counsellors are people who give their time to helping others, often holding up communities and failing statutory services, and without the recognition they so often deserve.

The awards process will open on Monday 4th May 2020. All entries MUST be received by noon on Monday 8th June 2020. Finalists will be announced on Monday 15th June 2020 and the winners will be announced online via our social media and website on Monday 22nd June – National Counsellors’ Day.

Raising the profile of the profession

We hope that hosting a National Counsellors’ Day will help us to raise the profile of the counselling profession. 

We hope you can join in and support us to make this happen. You can share our event on your social media accounts, with friends, family and colleagues.
