A counselling qualification can open doors to a wealth of career opportunities in a wide choice of specialist settings. But for the newly qualified practitioner, or those considering a change of pathway, there is little guidance to help them decide their next step. In this comprehensive book, Rick Hughes has gathered together leading practitioners and experts in their fields from across the sectors where counselling is provided to offer their wisdom and experience. The book covers all the main settings where counsellors work, including private practice, workplaces, higher and further education, NHS primary care, hospices and the voluntary sector, and also specialist fields of practice, such as children, young people and families and online counselling. A chapter on spiritual and religious belief systems discusses their significance in many people's lives. Packed with practical advice, information, enthusiasm and inspiration, and illustrated with first-person snapshots of contributors' working lives, this is an essential guide for students embarking on their career and qualified practitioners looking to extend their cv and explore different arenas of practice.

This is a handy pocket mentor offering essential guidance, information and a steadying influence during and post-qualification in what can seem like a mystifying maze of options (hidden and in plain sight) in the counselling profession. Your training will teach you about the healing and transformative effect of counselling and the costs and benefits to you and clients. In this book, you will learn what counsellor/psychotherapy practitioners continually do to ensure effective safe and ethical practice of what goes on 'in the counselling space/s' with clients, including the important components of creativity and spirituality in those relationships.

Val Watson, independent coach, counsellor, psychotherapist and supervisor
