National Counsellors’ Day Awards

Celebrating YOU!

As part of the National Counsellors’ Day 2020 celebrations we launched the UK’s first ever National Counselling Awards. The awards proved to be a huge success and so we have decided we will run them every year. Counsellors 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.

  • Important dates. The awards process opens on Sunday 31st January 2021. All entries MUST be received by midnight on Sunday 23rd May 2021. Finalists will be announced on Monday 14th June 2021. Winners will be announced on 22nd June 2021 – National Counsellors’ Day.
  • If you have any questions about the National Counselling Awards please email awards@nationalcounsellorsday.co.uk

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.
