In his interview Mick, who is a Chartered Counselling Psychologist, briefly talks about the benefits of using different approaches to helping people, such as humanistic, existential, relational, pluralistic and emotional-focused therapies. He is involved with researching counselling in schools and he is currently the National Advisor for Counselling for the Children and Young People’s IAPT Programme.
Mick says: “The counselling in schools work is incredibly important to me because it’s a way of extending therapeutic practices and values out into the wider community. It means that thousands of kids can access emotional support in their own school. It’s also really important that young people can access counselling outside of schools, and I’m currently working with Youth Access to develop the evidence base for counselling in the voluntary and community sector.”
