Job Description

Description:

Carrs Lane Counselling Centre, Birmingham, provides a counselling service to adults living within Birmingham and the surrounding area. The counselling service is accredited by the BACP. The Centre currently has vacancies for Volunteer Group Clinical Supervisors. This would be to supervise a group of up to 4 (counsellors and/or trainee counsellors) who meet once a month for two hours. There may also be some opportunities for providing individual clinical supervision.

This opportunity would also suit those already engaged in clinical supervision training who are seeking a supervision placement.

What we can offer Supervisors:

[1] The opportunity to provide clinical supervision within a British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy accredited counselling service. Carrs Lane Counselling Centre has held BACP Accredited Counselling Service status since February 2007. All BACP Accredited Services demonstrate a high level of professionalism and quality of service provision, meeting benchmark standards that are maintained by annual external assessment.

[2] The opportunity to supervise counsellors and trainees who are working with clients from all backgrounds presenting with diverse symptomology.

[3] The opportunity to supervise short term, medium and longer term counselling work with clients. Unlike many agencies, we do not restrict the number of sessions with clients to less than ten, but seek to provide as much time as is reasonably needed for clients to address their issues.

[4] Attendance on Continuing Professional Development courses that are held at the Centre throughout the year at no charge.

[5] To be part of a team that is supported through a system of mentoring and supervision and by a management structure that ensures all aspects of the service meet the standards required by the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy.
