Volunteer Counsellor

  • VO75925


Description

We are looking for volunteer counsellors to come on board in our mental health charity. We are a small charity with a huge heart and are growing fast. We offer free counselling sessions to individuals experiencing mental health issues, and require more counsellors to meet our growing demand.
We are a very friendly and professional drop in hub and education service, and are keen to expand further.
We have opportunities for counsellors to come on board and work with individuals experiencing mental health difficulties. We are open to all age groups and experience of youth counselling would be advantageous, but not a necessity.
Our hub is open on a Monday evening 6.30-9pm and we also have a men’s only fitness and wellbeing group on a Thursday evening 7.30-10pm.
We are hoping to expand further with our own premises and would appreciate any additional counselling help available on either days. We are happy to support and cover any supervision costs required for carrying out this role.
