“My placement here at Care To Listen, has been amazing and has allowed me to really grow as a counsellor.  I have been able to progress and develop in many areas of the organisation.  I am now working not just on my client work, but also performing initial assessments and also working within IAPT. All of this experience I could not have gained anywhere else. All in all, the best decision I could have made!”
