Counting your hours

All clinical hours gained on placement can be used towards accreditation with a body such as BACP and UKCP.

However if you need to gain clinical hours for your course, we would strongly advise that you check with your course tutor as to whether child hours are accepted before applying. If your course does not accept child hours but you would like to gain counselling experience of working with Children and Young People, you can still apply for a Place2Be placement as a second placement.

Regardless of age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, marital status, pregnancy, race, religion or belief, applicants will be considered based on their abilities, qualifications and Place2Be’s business needs.
