How you can help

As a Volunteer Counsellor, you will support the delivery of a wide range of interventions for service users. These will include:

  • See a minimum of 2 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 their 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.

What skills do you need?

The role would be ideal for someone looking to develop their therapeutic experience in the drug and alcohol field and accrue some counselling hours towards your future accreditation with BPS, BACK, UKCP. While some knowledge of the sector is desirable, we are specifically looking for people who have a passion for the work that we do. A positive attitude and the desire to learn are essential, as is a non-judgemental and supportive approach to people who are facing problems with drugs and alcohol.


We look forward to hearing from you!

Please note: we ask that volunteers counsellors try to commit for at least one year where possible.
