Our counselling service provides people with the opportunity to meet in private with a Volunteer Counsellor for 12 weekly (up to 1 year), 50-minute sessions to discuss issues and concerns, which are currently making life difficult.

These could include any of the following and more: addictions, low self-esteem, stress, anxiety, panic attacks, self-harm, relationship difficulties, loss of purpose or meaning, family difficulties, loss and bereavement, anger, depression, trauma, etc.

You will enable individuals to identify and explore their concerns whilst reviewing options and assisting individuals to decide on a course of action.

As a Volunteer Counsellor, you will:
  • See a minimum of 3 clients and a maximum of 6 clients per week (1 day).
  • Keep accurate records of work in line with WDP expectations and feedback any issues to your line manager/supervisor
  • Attend ongoing training in discussion with your clinical supervisor
  • Adhere to all WDP policies and procedures
In addition to the above you will be invited to participate in meetings where relevant and to carry out other tasks as deemed necessary to support the needs of the counselling service.
