Student Volunteer Placements

We offer student volunteer placements to counselling students who ideally are final year counselling diploma, or masters students with some counselling experience who need to undertake their voluntary hours to meet qualification requirements, in our friendly supportive service. We know that many courses specify the ages of the clients you work with and we would try to meet your requirements but we would offer you clients that are suitable for your level of experience and cannot always match clients due to age. Please be aware of this when applying.

Working With Young People

We work with a range of children and young people aged 10-25 years old facing complex issues from diverse cultural backgrounds, we ask that you have an interest in the wellbeing of young people and preferably have experience of working with children and young people with the type of support they need.

We work with clients on a 8 week model of counselling and are not able to offer them long term therapy.

We ask for a commitment of at least one year post qualification to our service and we hope to provide you with a supportive experience that helps you to develop your practice.

We ask that all volunteers are member of the BACP and we will carry out an enhanced DBS check before starting the placement.


Volunteering with us is a great way to make a difference to the lives of children and young people. We ask that you are able to offer us at least 2 hours to offer sessions to young people. We offer you travel expenses, group supervision and CPD training opportunities. As part of this role you will attend in house group supervision monthly. We also expect you to attend AGM and Team meetings regularly.
