Barnet Carers Centre, which is based in North Finchley, is looking for Volunteer Counsellors who are in their final year of their counselling qualification and are willing to commit on a longer-term basis to volunteering for us.
We are looking for trainee counsellors who have experience working with children and young people to support our young carers (aged 5-17).
Our young carers face many struggles, particularly primary young carers who are the sole care-giver for a family member. We hope to support these wonderful young people to maintain positive mental health and be empowered to work through any challenges they may be facing.
This is a wonderful opportunity to gain practical counselling experience and to enrich the life of a vulnerable child.
* To run 50 minute counselling sessions with clients allocated by Barnet Carers Centre
* To adhere to Barnet Carers Centre strict policy of confidentiality at all times
* To attend one hour supervisions on a monthly basis
* Application Form
* References (with applicant agreement)
* Informal interview
* DBS check if required
* Induction and training
Travel expenses are provided - you will also receive supervision from our qualified counsellor as part of your volunteer placement.
