Contemporary counselling practice obligations and issues such as the demands of maintaining competence and quality assurance, working as a counsellor within diverse settings and with diverse populations and the provision of consultancy will be addressed. Ethical thinking, codes of practice for counsellors and rehabilitation counsellors, and approaches to applying these codes to actual practice dilemmas, will be explored with particular attention paid to current and developing areas of ethical challenge.
