What is SILC?

Step into Learning has been successfully running counselling courses for a number of years and have now created SILC to provide a beneficial free counselling service to the community of Launceston.

A Counselling Coordinator manages the provision with two counselling supervisors to ensure the highest ethical practice is maintained and that the client and the trainee counsellor can meet in a safe environment. All of the management team are highly qualified counsellors with years of specialised training and experience.

What is Counselling?

Counselling is a therapeutic approach that can provide clients with the opportunity to be listened to and supported as they work through difficulties in their lives. These difficulties may already be known or may be disclosed for the first time during the counselling process. Working with a counsellor means that a person can be supported through what may be some very painful or difficult situations.

Who will my Counsellor be?

Our trainee counsellors are:

  • In the final year of their diploma qualification and have been assessed as “fit to practice”
  • Fully insured under the V Learning Net company insurance policy
  • Receive regular professional supervision
  • Members of or in the process of joining a governing body such as BACP or NCS

What can I expect from the sessions?

Therapy offers you a safe, confidential place to talk about your life and anything that may be confusing, painful, or uncomfortable. It allows you to talk with someone trained to listen attentively and help you improve things (BACP 2010). Counselling can help to give you the tools to move forward in your life by being listened to and supported as you make sense of your situation.
