Student Placement

The SWAN project provides placements for qualified counsellors as well as therapists in training. We have up to 52 counsellors working at SWAN at any one time. 

How To Apply

Placement applications are welcome all year round. Please email the Service Manager for more information or an application form: vickidonald@theswanproject.co.uk

Support / Training

All those on placement will receive appropriate levels of supervision 

We offer various training days and workshops for those on placement as well as external therapists. First year (compulsory) training is free to those on placement, but we do ask for a contribution towards optional further training sessions and workshops. 

Training is delivered by The Project Founder Veronica Aaronson, author of “Addiction, This Being Human” alongside the Clinical Lead Matt Thacker and our team of supervisors.
