Why does Iron Mill College have a counselling service? 


Iron Mill Counselling Service is a not-for-profit initiative which aims to increase the accessibility of counselling to the general public by offering a more affordable alternative to people who might not be otherwise able to access counselling.

 

The service is predominantly staffed by mature adults who are currently undergoing professional training in counselling and/or psychotherapy with Iron Mill College and are supported in their work by experienced supervisors.

I’m a student with Iron Mill College, can I attend counselling with the Iron Mill Counselling Service?

 

No. At present the service acts as a placement opportunity for student counsellors and psychotherapists training with Iron Mill College.

 

We feel that it would not be appropriate for students of Iron Mill College to be a client of the in-house counselling service. This is due to dual role and boundary issues. It is also possible that in the future you might want to undertake a placement with us yourself.

What our Students Say

β€œIt achieved a great balance between knowledge of the topic and making this interesting and close to us... the Tutor managed to make {the lecture} understandable to us with day to day examples. At the same time we felt that he was really an expert in the topic. From a HR perspective we were delighted to get so many people participating in the Q&A after the talk, as this is not the usual way our staff behaves.”
