About The Role
Please ensure you only apply for one vacancy. This is just your location preference which can be changed at a later date.
Counsellors on Placement provide emotional and therapeutic support to children and young people aged 4-18 in Place2Be partner schools.
As an organisation that has adopted the BACP ethical framework of good practice in Counselling and Psychotherapy, counsellors working within the organisation are dedicated to improving the mental health and well-being of the children they work with.
All clinical hours gained on placement can be used towards accreditation with a body such as BACP and UKCP. However if you need to gain clinical hours for your course, we would strongly advise that you check with your course tutor as to whether child hours are accepted before applying.
If your course does not accept child hours but you would like to gain counselling experience of working with Children and Young People, you can still apply for a Place2Be placement as a second placement.
