What we offer you

Work with children in a safe and secure environment and gain specialist professional training. Our training also offers excellent onward career opportunities in therapeutic settings.

 

 

 

Continuing Professional Development

As part of your clinical placement you have access to free clinical training workshops. We promote the use of creative methods to enable children to express themselves and to support them in finding ways to flourish.

Before you can begin your clinical placement, you will need to complete the following mandatory trainings:

  • Volunteer Counsellor Induction and Safeguarding training (one day)
  • Volunteer Introductory Workshop (two days)
     

Once you have started your placement, further one day workshops are available for you to book on:

  • Attachment Theory & Self Awareness in the Counsellor
  • Children's Emotional Wellbeing
  • Helping Children Tell Their Stories
  • Making Endings with Children
  • Working with Difference & Diversity
  • Working with Metaphor
     

Further specialist training is also available for Volunteer Counsellors who are in their second year or are working in secondary schools.

All of our training workshops take place on weekends, apart from the Volunteer Counsellor Induction & Safeguarding Training.

The Level 4 Certificate in Counselling Children (Practice) is a great way to gain a specialist qualification that recognises and accredits the entire Volunteer Counsellor experience.
