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. 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 lives to helping save others, and are unsung heroes, often holding up communities and failing statutory services. 

The awards process will open on Monday 2nd March 2020 and the deadline for nominations will be midnight on Sunday 31st May 2020. Finalists will be announced on Friday 12th June 2020 and the winners will be announced on Saturday 20nd June, at the National Counsellors’ Day Conference.

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