We are now in our 3rd year of hosting our National Counselling Awards and it is definitely one of our favourite times of the year. As always, we are really excited to hear from you and read all about the work of counsellors and counselling services. Self-nominations are as welcome as nominating others.
Our main aim as an organisation is to end the culture of exploitation within our field. So, we remain keen to reward good practice in organisations that are using volunteers, and have a selection of awards aimed at recognising excellence within the voluntary sector. In 2021, David Cooper won our most inspirational volunteer counsellor award for his work in the probation service. In his nomination he was commended for his approach to working with offenders and his willingness to pass on his knowledge to students coming into the service. You can read about all of 2021 winners here.
In the lead up to our 2022 awards we will be asking some of last year’s winners what receiving an award meant to them. So please do keep an eye out for those stories which will be coming to you soon.
We look forward to receiving your nomination soon.
