Introduction to Counselling - Level 2


The College have been like a family to me ever since I walked in the door

Tracy Callaghan

Tracy Callaghan

Studied: Diploma in Counselling

Destination: Now works as a clinical supervisor working to rehabilitate substance misusers

At a very low point in her life, while trying to overcome a serious assault, Tracy could no longer carry on her job due to her injuries. She came to the College to work out her options.

“I was so nervous as I’m dyslexic, did not have any GCSEs, and had been out of education for a long time but the careers team were brilliant. Bit by bit I built up my skills and experience from studying counselling theory to therapeutic and psycho therapeutic diplomas.

“I now own my own counselling service and manage volunteers supporting substance misusers. I am a creative clinical supervisor and council and use hypnotherapy with clients across the world on Skype. I also teach at the College who have been like a family to me ever since I walked in the door.”
