Becoming a counsellor at Frontline therapist’s low-cost counselling service
Frontline Therapist offers placements to trainee counsellors, psychotherapists and counselling psychologists and those who are working towards accreditation, who are passionate about offering short and long-term mental health support to people in the community.
You will receive appropriate training to be equipped with working with individuals with various needs.
You will be part of a growing and innovative community passionate about helping people that cannot normally afford and access therapy in the community.
We usually offer placements to students who have already completed the first year of a Diploma or post-graduate course. In some circumstances, we may take on students in the first year of a Diploma/MA course if they have other valuable experience in the caring professions or on related placements.
All counsellors are required to provide counselling for four clients, one evening/day a week. The majority of our client’s experience anxiety, depression, relationship breakdown, amongst other mild to moderate mental health difficulties. We will schedule clients for you, on a regular, weekly basis. We encourage an integrative approach and offer placements to trainees practising a range of therapeutic modalities.
You will receive fortnightly group supervision. You are asked to provide a financial contribution of £35.00 a month towards clinical supervision. This remains payable should you not attend a session.
Please note that we receive a high volume of applications and we are unfortunately not able to reply to each unsuccessful applicant. We will acknowledge receipt of your application but will only contact applicants selected for an interview.
