Training placement

Individual Counselling/Psychotherapy placement

If you are on or have completed a Level 4 or above counselling course (Diploma/PGDip/Masters), work psychodynamically and have a minimum of 50 hours clinical experience, then you are eligible for this placement. Please refer to the Role Description for Volunteer Placement Counsellors.

We're seeing an increasing number of clients seeking evening appointments. We'd be delighted to hear from placement counsellors who are willing to do evening appointments to support with the delivery of our service.

Supervision groups are held at specific times, and you will need to indicate which time you could make on a regular basis in your application. The current time slots are:

  • Monday 1 - 3pm
  • Tuesday 1.30 - 3.30pm
  • Wednesday 6 - 8pm

We are currently at capacity for volunteers but are welcoming applications from individuals who would like to start in September 2024. If you submit an application between now and the 31st May, we'll allocate interview slots in June and July on a first come first served basis.
