Placement Opportunities


HELP Counselling Services provides its services entirely through the kind and generous efforts of its volunteer counsellors. From time to time we have new volunteer placement opportunities and seek counsellors who are in their final year of training or fully trained counsellors wishing to gain a wider range of experience, or those counsellors who are working towards accreditation.

At HELP Counselling Services we are able to offer a warm and supportive atmosphere in which to fully experience a wide and interesting range of clients. We offer external monthly supervision with a qualified supervisor of the counsellors’ choice, up to a value of £45, as well as internal guidance from staff and colleagues and tri-monthly counsellor informal support evenings.

We ask that counsellors have a minimum commitment of three clients per week at a regular time slot for at least one year. Due to the wide range of clients we request that all counsellors have at least 40 hours of one to one counselling experience and again we must insist that only final year students or qualified counsellors apply.

If you are interested in becoming a volunteer counsellor with HELP Counselling Services please click the link below and download our application form. Once completed please either post it back to us, where upon we will confirm receipt.

Although we cannot guarantee a placement opportunity at the time of application we can assure all applicants that all volunteer requests are all carefully filed and when a placement becomes available all appropriate candidates will be considered and contacted.

We would also like to take this opportunity to thank all our volunteers for their hard work over the years. The service simply would not exist without them.

Thank You
