Student Placement Database

Our student placement database is an exclusive online advertising service for counselling and psychotherapy placements. Promote your opportunity to BACP student members.


A placement is a vital part of counselling training, allowing students to apply their knowledge and practise their skills safely under supervision.

With placements always in short supply, our student placement database was created specifically to help our 6,635* student members find opportunities. (*figures correct February 2017)

You do not have to be a BACP member to advertise a placement.


The price for a placement advertisement is £35 a month.

Rates are per placement and are exclusive of vat. We do not offer any discounts or pro rata reductions for part months.


We accept telephone payment using most debit or credit cards, or you can make a BACS payment. We will invoice account holders.

Advertise a placement

To advertise a placement, please complete the form below and email it to†samantha.edwards@bacp.co.ukdocx file  Student placement booking form (0.02Mb)

You have up to 200 words to describe the placement and how to apply. Please make sure that you provide all the information requested on the form, that your advert is easy to understand and all links are working.
