Volunteer Counsellor Positions

BCS welcomes applications from qualified or trainee counsellors to join our committed team of Volunteer Counsellors.

Attending weekly group supervision is a requirement when counselling clients at BCS. We currently have spaces within the following groups: Mondays 4.15-5.45pm and Wednesdays 2.15-3.45pm.

For further details on applying, please see the Application and Selection Guidelines for Applicants and External Assessment – Guidelines for Applicants.

Please also see the Counsellors’ Expectations of BCS and BCS Expectations of Counsellors document, which describes what BCS provides for counsellors who undertake counselling of BCS clients, and what BCS in turn expects of such counsellors.

Please note that we are unable to consider applications from counsellors in training unless trainees are able to start the placement within approximately two months. Applications made too far in advance mean that it is difficult for us to predict how trainees would develop over the intervening months and it is important for us to get as good an understanding as possible of where trainees are at the point at which they would begin seeing clients at BCS. We are also unable to predict what spaces we may have available in supervision groups too far in advance.

We offer a payment scheme for qualified counsellors; please enquire if you would like further details.

If you wish to submit an application for consideration, please download an Application Form and email your completed form to info@basingstokecounselling.org.uk or send it by post to Basingstoke Counselling Service, Goldings, London Road, Basingstoke, Hampshire, RG21 4AN.
