The Head of Counselling vacancy presents an exciting opportunity to lead and manage a dedicated team of part-time counsellors delivering around 4,000 counselling sessions each year to a broad range of people in the community, many of whom would not otherwise be able to access counselling.
The Head of Counselling is supported by a full-time Administration and Office Manager, a part-time Clinical Assistant, and a part-time Business Support and Fundraising Manager.
The successful candidate will have some experience of co-ordinating or managing a counselling service or project, supporting trainee counsellors, working with external stakeholders, and measuring clinical outcomes. They will have a Post-Graduate Diploma/MA/MSc in Counselling or Psychotherapy, a minimum of 5 years’ post-qualifying clinical experience, and preferably a Diploma in Supervision.
This is both a challenging and rewarding role which will give the successful candidate the opportunity to support people from all walks of life to access valuable and affordable mental health care; and to deliver, initiate, and develop mental health projects.
The present Head of Counselling will be available for a handover period to offer part-time mentoring and support as required.
