Mind in Rushden has been my first placement experience as a 2nd year integrative counselling student. The training and ongoing support from the Counselling Lead has been exceptional. The working environment is friendly and team-oriented. Communication, advice, encouragement and CPD opportunities are fantastic, allowing me to develop my practice, raise awareness of mental health difficulties and learn new skills.
