Countdown to the UK’s first ever National Counsellors’ Day is on…

Celebrating YOU!

Conference – The Future of Counselling

To launch and celebrate the UK’s first ever National Counsellors’ Day, on the 22nd June 2019, we will be hosting a full days conference at the University of Lincoln, from 9.30am – 5.00pm.

The conference will allow Counsellors from across the UK to come together and discuss the theme of the day which is, The Future of Counselling. There will be five presentations with breaks for lunch and refreshments and an inspirational speech to end. There will also be time for networking and browsing stalls, time to meet all those people we communicate with on Facebook in real life!

The schedule for the day is as follows:

You can view full details about our presenters here.

It really does look set to be an amazing day and we can’t wait to meet you all.

National Counsellors’ Day Awards

As part of National Counsellors’ Day 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 such as; best startup and most innovative business, employer of the year and best charity employer, student of the year, most inspirational tutor/lecturer, best training institute,
most inspirational campaigner/activist, best public figure promoting mental health and researcher of the year, amongst others.

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

Why awards?

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. Celebrating Counsellors matters because we are highly qualified and skilled professionals who work out of the public eye, often saving people lives. Counsellors are people who give their lives to helping save others, and are unsung heroes, often holding up communities and failing statutory services. 

The awards process will open on Monday 6th May 2019 and the deadline for nominations will be midnight on Sunday 9th June 2019. Finalists will be announced on Friday 14th June 2019 and the winners will be announced on Saturday 22nd June, National Counsellors’ Day 2019.

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.
