Mid-August Post

Hope the dampness of August has not depressed you too much. A few things:

1. Next (last scheduled) meeting
We are due to meet again on Sunday, 17 September, from 1pm at the Voluntary Services Centre, Bradford. The Day Centre on the 3rd floor will be available to us on this occasion. I hope as many of you as possible can attend – particularly since this is the last scheduled meeting and there is the very real danger of us running out of steam altogether and the whole thing grinding to a standstill.

Apologies, plans to attend, thoughts about future meetings and/or the future of the group generally, and any other comments – please mail back soon to

2. URGENT request for counselling placement
We have been approached by a Diploma student in a very difficult situation. He has until November to clock up another 23 practice hours for his Diploma or faces the prospect of all his work over the last two years coming to naught. If you are aware of any individuals seeking FREE counselling, or of any agency which could offer some work, please get in touch at the earliest opportunity. He has been CRB checked/cleared, and his CV is available on request.

3. Counselling Skills tutor/s required
Some teaching is currently available at Shipley College, starting from this September 2006:

NCFE level 2 Introductory Counselling Skills Course – 20 weeks at 2hrs per week
NCFE level 3 Certificate in Counselling Skills – 30 weeks at 3-4hrs per week

Anyone interested should contact Elaine Dewhirst, Shipley College 01274 327254 ASAP.
