Comments from our Volunteer Team

I have felt very welcome at the centre despite us all having to work remotely at the moment. Everyone works very hard to ensure new volunteers feel part of the team. I have felt extremely supported and would definitely recommend the centre to other volunteers

VictoriaTrainee Counsellor

Leicester Counselling Centre was fundamental in my journey to qualifying as a psychoanalytic psychotherapist, offering a robust framework and a warm community to grow within

PaulaQualified Psychoanalytic Psychotherapist

The centre allows me to support people who might struggle to access therapy in other ways. It always feels like a 'safe space' for both clients and therapists

AqeelaTrainee Counsellor

LCC’s approach feels genuinely client centred which is combined with a high level of professional and personal support for all of us who work there.

MaureenQualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist

Volunteering at the centre has been a seamless process and well supported by both the director Hannah and administrator Sharon. Any questions and queries are answered quickly and it has been a pleasure to work here

SalmaTrainee Counsellor

The LCC team is so supportive to trainee counsellors. Help is so easily accessible, should you need it. Working through covid times as a trainee I have valued this help and support and would highly recommend LCC to any trainees that are looking for a counselling placement.

SelinaTrainee Counsellor

Great place for a placement. Safe, containing and ethical. Nice biscuits too! Very well managed, friendly and welcoming

DeniseQualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist

The Leicester Counselling Centre provides copious support for their volunteers which creates a perfect environment to begin a placement. The opportunities and guidance they provide is exceptional and the counselling process provided is at an outstanding standard

OliviaTrainee Counsellor

I have felt very supported during my time at LCC, the team are all very approachable and helpful. I really appreciate the opportunity to have peer support which are held on a regular basis. A great place to experience the Clinical work with clients as I progress through my training at Sherwood. Thanks for having me and would definitely recommend you to others

TrudyTrainee Counsellor

I started as a trainee at LCC whilst studying for my degree and gained invaluable experience. Since I qualified I have stayed on as a volunteer because I truly value working with the diverse range of clients, the professionalism and ultimately the support the centre offers to me.

DebbieQualified Counsellor and Psychotherapist

LCC has been a warm and supportive placement. I really value the fact that everyone at LCC takes time to look after volunteers as well as clients. The informal Zoom meetings set up for volunteers during remote working are a lovely example of this. I've gained a lot from accessing CPD through LCC. The courses have been fascinating and are excellent value for money.
