We’re pleased to share an update on our Board of Governors as we look forward to a busy and productive 2022.

Our newest Governor Punam Farmah is settling into her role after she was elected by members at our AGM in November.

Punam is a person-centred counsellor, who works in private practice and as a counselling tutor.

She is passionate about ensuring that the counselling and psychotherapy professions support future generations of both clients and practitioners.

Julie May, who was originally elected to the Board in 2018 and was due to step down at the end of last year, has now been co-opted onto the Board for another year.

She’ll be staying until our 2022 AGM to provide stability to the Board and so we can continue to draw on her skillset and experience throughout the year.

Julie works in private practice and manages a group practice providing facilities for counsellors to start up and develop their own businesses.

We’re also continuing to recruit for the role of our Chair of our Finance, Risk, Audit, Policy and Performance (FRAPP) Committee, who will also join our Board of Governors.

We'll be updating members once we've recruited for this role.
