Before ACAP I studied the Advanced Diploma of Naturopathy. When I began working the field one of the major skills I was lacking was counselling, so I enrolled at ACAP. I completed my ACAP work placements at a private hospital, where I ran group sessions for patients. It was such a rich, supportive learning environment with a supervisor that was hands-on the whole way through. Before my work placement was complete, I was offered a job.

As a teenager, I had a few family members experience post-natal depression. My interest in counselling grew from wanting to understand their experience, and how to support others who may be experiencing mental health difficulties. Being face-to-face with clients and implementing treatment during my placement, gave me a true insight into what employment in the field would be like. I can’t emphasise enough how important these practices are. Sarah, Graduate Diploma of Counselling
