121 Youth Counselling provides free to access confidential counselling sessions for children and young people aged 11-25 years. We are looking for fully qualified counsellors (Integrative and Person-Centred) or alternatively are working towards level 4/5 qualifications ideally in a counselling adolescents course to work alongside our team of paid, volunteer and student counsellors to work with 11-16 year olds.
The bespoke service run is run by Hart Voluntary Action working within the BACP ethical framework, and offering counselling 50 weeks of the year on a long-term/open-ended basis. We are always looking for more counsellors to join us to help meet the demand we have for support for this age group.
As Hart is a rural area, counselling operates from different community venues in Fleet and Yateley and also from our own counselling rooms at Odiham Cottage Hospital.
Counselling receptionists are on site to meet clients and ensure health and safety.
Volunteers must be available late afternoons
or early evenings to cater for after-school/college sessions.
Access to your own transport is essential. So if you are already qualified to work this age group, we would love to speak to you.
We are looking for counsellors who have achieved a post level 4/5 qualification in counselling adolescents which meets BACP requirements, or who are looking for a placement whilst studying for this qualification.
What we offer in return:
3 - 4 clients per week - you decide. Each counselling session consists of 50 minutes counselling and 10 minutes to write up notes.
Monthly group supervision with a very experienced clinical supervisor is provided.
A contribution towards travel expenses is available.
